Art Work of the Month October 2010

Andreas Jaeggi:
"Lost Souls"

The movement study "Lost Souls" is based on 12 portraits (Color Crayon on Shrinky Dink, US Letter Format, 2010). On one hand, these faces are a reflection on today's craze of each individual striving for perfect beauty (see "Beautiful People") which drives young, absolutely non-gay men to prance around half-naked in brand-labeled pseudo-sportswear, with every untweezed body hair trimmed into shape. On the other hand, we have the total contempt of the power-hungry Good Ol'Boys for the lives of these young men who are sent off to war as always, where they invariably storm headlong towards the mutilation of their souls and bodies. The history of Mankind remains the history of wars.
