From the artist:
According to John's gospel 20:17, noli me tangere (touch me not) are the words Jesus said to Mary Madeline when she met him after his resurrection from the dead. Going against the traditional understanding of noli me tangere as words of warning against touching the body of Jesus I position the words as confirming the clarity and intelligence of a woman who could see more clearly than her fellow male disciples. Looking through this lens we see a moment in time where the vulnerabilities of one who is undergoing transformation is clearly shown.
