Ice Hockey Prayer (2009)
The Marussiac Ice Hockey Prayer installation is a remix of a classic game. The original board game has simple rules that are similar to those of real ice hockey, which is often a violent game. Hockey players are seen as modern gladiators in many circles; however, there is no winner with the Marussiac Ice Hockey Prayer piece, which is a conceptual guide for meditation through sport.
The piece essentially presents an idea, allowing anyone who wants to play, to play and do so well. For Marussiac, this piece is right in line with the rest of his portfolio, which is rife with ironic, socially satirical pieces. Check out the Marussiac Ice Hockey Prayer piece for a lesson in fair play.
