WE COME ALIVE FROM EATING YOUR FLESH

 

We Come Alive From Eating Your Flesh is an embellished photograph diptych furthering the artists' exploration into the visual culture of fantasy as a reference to the mythologization of the political elite in the modern day. The slightly dystopic yet romantic backdrops provides a sense of neocolonial aftermath. Sitting on pristine thrones and wearing royal clothes in shallow lakes of blood, the subjects act as both doomed receiver of privilege and dramatized executor of wrath upon their nation. Biting the hand that feeds, we see the natural world rot and writhe in their hands. As the playthings and puppets of powerful, developed nations, they are glamorized and exalted yet passive and incapable, and drowning in intricacy. A tragic scene of the end of an era.
