Controversial Canadian photographer Bruce LaBruce’s latest exhibition in Spain has sparked outrage among Catholics and conservatives in Madrid, who have denounced it as blasphemous. The exhibition is called “Obscenity” and features photos of kinky nuns in lingerie and tattooed Christs.
After the opening of LaBruce’s show this week, Catholic Group AES called for a demonstration “against blasphemy” outside the gallery on Friday, “in defence of our Christian roots and the Catholic faith”.
The 50 images in the exhibition include an image the popular Spanish/Mexican singer Alaska as a sexy saint with a communion wafer on her tongue, while in another she hugs a tattooed Christ to her breast in a kinky tribute to Michelangelo’s “Pieta” sculpture.
