This body of work was initiated in Paris as part of the Réciprocité / Villa Saigon residency programme of the French Institute of Vietnam. About 3 times a week, I would sit in prayer at Saint-Paul Church on Rue Saint during the Paris lockdown because of Covid-19. Phi Long thought of Jesus' saying: "Father, forgive them, for they don't know what they are doing" on the day He was crucified in Judea in the first century. At A. Farm Long experimented with the module “Hic Domus Est Dei” no.5 — a yellow cloth circle in the garden with a diameter of 5 meters simulating the Crown of Thorns. Almost a religious ritual, every day he maintained the circle with a broom and water so that this cloth has enough weight to maintain its round shape in the rain, wind, and sun. At the same time, he drew a string of Crown of Thorns in ink and gold on paper; enumerated drawings in the power of imagination and memory from the documentary thorns to the head of God that he am known.
