Paul Brother "And the Word became flesh"

The artist Pavel Brat became famous three years ago with the project “Body Mass”, for which he was nominated for the Kuryokhin Prize. At that exhibition, he showed icon objects made from sheets of glossy fashion magazines. It turned out so subtle and spectacular that even Orthodox activists seem to prefer not to notice anything.
