Előd Izsák – Cross in Bread ( “Kenyerbe vetett kereszt” – from hungarian)video installation – 2006
exhibited in Oradea – Transylvania/Romania
bread was made by the artist’s mother in Egerpatak – Transylvania/Romania
Under the bread on a TV-screen a loop video can be seen with a rotating cross graved on the bread-crumb.
The bread’s shape reminds us to the millstone. The rotation of the cross reminds us to an increasingly forgotten ancient tradition – the blessing of the bread (in the bread)
