The Passion of the Pole








In this controversial piece, performance artist Tom Marshman confronts the taboo subjects of mental disorders and religion, juxtaposing the last hours of Jesus Christ (The Passion) and pole dancing. The pole becomes a crucifix, a site for Tom to expose and execute his anxieties with crude honesty. Tom Marshman is an Associate Artist at Bristol's Arnolfini.
