An ambiguous artefact of doubtful authenticity recovers a buried identity. Work comments on importance and purpose, using by-products of the making process and things that normally get discarded, formalising simple actions such as wiping hands or face clean when finishing the job. A ‘sudarium’ (sweat cloth) is used to remove facial dirt after dipping in the clay mould, capturing contact and presence. Piece draws inspiration from the ‘Sudarium of Oviedo’, the veil miraculously marked with evidence of suffering, since it supposedly holds the blood stains from Jesus face while on the cross. Suggestive of torture and traced with signs of personal frustration, veil describes the space delineated by face, whereas being folded it hides the clay imprint inside, concealing individual marks. Folding the ‘sudarium’ is surrounded by a controversy assigning specific meaning to the action of Jesus himself folding his death cloth after his resurrection.
