Help Me (Yantra Tattoo)

The work, created in Thailand with the help of four monks and an assistant, is part of my artistic research project .


Based on their expertise and my horoscope, four monks selected a tattoo design for me. While the protective signs are usually carved into human skin, I asked to have the tattoo selected for me drawn on skin-colored leather vests that I had specially made for this purpose. As with all works, the assessments and classifications of my person are contrasted with the photo portraits of the project participants.
