Ren Production Photographs

Ren was performed in 2008 at an abandonned car dealership off of I-5 in Los Angeles. The title is a contraction of "Re" (the Egyptian sun god) and "Renaissance". Like The Guardian of the Veil, Ren is inspired by Norman Mailer's Ancient Evenings and Egyptian beliefs about the afterlife.

The performance includes a 1967 Chrysler Imperial (as seen in Cremaster 3) and stars Aimee Mullins, who also appeared (as the Entered Novitiate) in Cremaster 3.
