For the works in Torture, artist Andres Serrano, under the guidance of military personnel, photographed more than 40 models that underwent various forms of torture. From the Station: “The models suffered humiliation and actual physical distress as they were shackled, submerged and forced into stress positions for extended periods of time. Both mental and physical techniques were used on his subjects, as Serrano chose to enter into a lineage of perverse experimentation for punishment or coercive means.”
