Well, as part of Art Below’s Stations of the Cross exhibition at St Marylebone Parish Church in London, a life-size sculpture of Pete Doherty being crucified, made by Nick Reynolds, is being displayed. The marble sculpture is titled “For Pete’s Sake,” and the exhibition is being curated by Ben Moore, who is raising awareness and money to help find his brother Tom who went missing in Italy in 2003.
In the video above, Doherty visits the church where the sculpture is to read the inscriptions on it and play “Amazing Grace.”
The Revd Canon Stephen Evans of St Marylebone Church recently talked to DIY about the exhibition, saying, “Doherty’s battle with addiction and a self-destructive lifestyle have been well catalogued in the press throughout his career; today, having successfully completed rehab treatment in Thailand, Doherty seeks to live a new life free of the things which had nearly destroyed him.”
Check out Doherty’s recent song “Flags of the Old Regime,” a tribute to his late friend Amy Winehouse.
