« Transsubstantiation etc. » is a science-fictional version of the New Testament, especially focusing on the Life of Jesus. In this story, he becomes Rubbi Niebieski, a character with supernatural powers, driving across the arid territories of the Zones in his SixWheeler to finally reach Estero, where he knows that death awaits him…

This book, printed in 150 copies* in a perspective size, was realised in 2012 from the three prototypes made in 2010 on the occasion of Ce qui vient / What comes, 2nd Edition of Les Ateliers de Rennes – Biennial of Contemporary Art.
