Queer evangelism

This project arises from trying to understand a relationship with the divine from the experience of a diverse body, through the construction of a character that appropriates the figure of the holy catholic nuns.
The nun manifests herself through a series of virtual sermons that can be viewed by scanning the QR code and appropriating the religious discourse, placing herself in the place of the priests as a preacher of the word while inviting reflection on different passages of the bible from a diverse approach.

obsession with mysticism and her constant defiance of religious
