I just have to start by saying that CACA is an unfortunate acronym for any organisation.
But now that I've got that off my chest, I wanted to share my joy with you at the discovery of the Shroud of Tom Cruise.
To commemorate twenty five years of him being Scientology's reigning queen, the Cory Allen Contemporary Art (CACA) space has commissioned the work alongside other notables including coins that bear that very trademark Cruise profile.
It's part of a whole Pop-up Scientology church that is totally going to change the way we look at spirituality and the earth and all that kind of stuff in St Petersburg in Florida. And like all good religious relics, it will remain beyond the powers of science.
Brilliant! You know how Rome is celebrating an invented jubilee year next year, well...you won't have to trouble yourself with coming on over. You can just totally hang out and get your celebrity/spiritual experience in Florida instead and work on your tan at the same time.
How fabulous I say. Personally I'm really happy that Daniel Edwards is honing his attention on Cruise and the Church of Scientology for an event at CACA. I think it is a holy trinity all of its own. And as much as I love Edwards' sculptures and busts, I think he's done something really fresh and appropriate for this event. Plus, there was always the risk that a bust or a statue could've ended up being taller than Tom Cruise and you know that kind of thing is always frowned upon (see Nicole Kidman).
