Art Exhibit Encourages Visitors To Punish Saintly Sculptures [Pics]
Michael Landy’s 'Saints Alive' exhibit features kinetic religious sculptures that ask viewers to 'torture' them.
Stories of saints and their trials to prove themselves Christianly have been forgotten by much of the secular world. In his newest exhibit, Saints Alive, showing at the National Gallery in London, artist Michael Landy seeks to reengage the public with the history of biblical saints, by letting them torture the holy men and women all over again.
