Abstract

This project is an arts-based examination of a series of Virgin Mary apparitions that occurred in Bol, Croatia, from June 25, 1946, until the end of September that year. The narrative focuses on two perspectives: that of Božidar Jakšić, a resident of Bol in 1946 who was imprisoned by the Yugoslavian government under the charge of conspiracy and perpetuating propaganda, and that of the artist-author, a first-generation queer American whose family comes from Bol. Based on Božidar’s journal, the artist-author uses various narrative devices and performances to reconstruct the events that occurred
