CATALOGUE NOTE
The present work is the first in the artist's Christ's Entry series, which draws on the iconic biblical account of Jesus's "triumphant" entry into Jerusalem (a few days prior to the Last Supper) via James Ensor's satirical 1888 painting Christ's Entry into Brussels in 1889. Other works in Stezaker's series employ collaged archival images and postcards to depict Christ's entry into Bratislava, Brick Lane in London, and even Jerusalem itself.
