"Ambrei As Potamiaena" approaches the subjects of abuse and martyrdom with beauty and grace firmly in hand. The hyper-realistic centerpiece -- Ambrei posing as St. Potamiaena, martyr and patron saint of rape victims -- serves as a springboard for the slow addition of an ever-growing flood of martyr names from a large database and viewer-provided rape-victim names, reminding us of the price of unflinching Faith and lost innocence, and giving a face to the ongoing horrors that span the centuries, the globe, and even our own lives.
