Do Boys Pray for a Manifested Glory?

Animation of brush and ink drawings, 2011

The teenager’s body writhing in a blank space is taken from a video of an exorcism performed on a boy by Manifested Glory church in America.

The original video shows people crowded around his body, praying, shouting, singing, hitting and restraining. The animation lifts him out of this context; it is projected human sized in a church presenting him as a universal figure to challenge the Church on the nature of grace and love at a turbulent point in its history.
