Icône Pop

Created upon the invitation of B-Motion (Bassano), Icône Pop is a playful clash between religious and pop iconographies, the sacred and the profane, saintly glorification and self-glorification. Featuring the auras of the Virgin Mary and Beyoncé in a striptease of the utmost modesty. In 2017, Icône Pop received the Buddies in Bad Times Vanguard Award for Risk and Innovation of theSummerWorks Performance Festival in Toronto
