Exploring the role of Christianity in mental and political oppression in colonialism. Supported with video material challenging the western representation of God. I aimed to create a satirical image mimicking a sort of ‘Mother Mary and Baby Jesus’ as we would see in western religious culture. The project aims to question African church culture which more often than not, is just a copy of western churches. Have we, black Africans, accepted white Jesus as our own, or are we still on the search for black Jesus?
