INT. ART GALLERY. DUBLIN - NIGHT
A dead man’s face, horribly contorted, looms out of the darkness. There’s a noose around his neck. He looks strangely familiar.
As more of the man comes into view it’s apparent that he’s dressed in full papal regalia and is suspended from a rope - it’s Pope Francis.
Mercifully it’s not the real pontiff just a very lifelike model. He is ‘hanging’ in a clear resin cube. A PLAQUE identifies the work as DOPE ON A ROPE by BRENDAN O’MALLEY.
The TINKLE of breaking glass is followed by a pained YELL.
Feck. I’m bleeding!
A shocked looking choir boy. But it’s not the language that’s offended him - he’s impaled on a crucifix.
Quit your whining and get the pump.
The choirboy is encased in a clear resin cylinder. A PLAQUE identifies the work as SUFFER THE CHILDREN by BRENDAN O’MALLEY…
A THRUMMING sound starts up.
Across the room a VIRGIN MARY shaped mummy, swathed in bandages, with a similarly wrapped BABY JESUS perched on her lap, is encased in a resin pyramid. A PLAQUE identifies THE VIRGIN MUMMY by BRENDAN O’MALLEY.
Behind the Virgin a massive GOLDEN BULLOCK bursts from its resin cube. Astride its back is JESUS, posed like a rodeo rider, naked apart from a cowboy hat. The plaque identifies the work as BOLLOCKS AND BULLOCK by BRENDAN O’MALLEY.
A dark substance splatters across the Saviour’s face…
…And over the Pope’s cube.
…And down the Virgin Mummy’s pyramid.
A thick hose poking through a broken window pumps a stream of viscous goo into the gallery.
The shocked choirboy’s face is obscured as the substance dribbles down his resin tube.
