Julia Varela

X/5.000

2015–16

Folded plasma screens

The crumpled plasma screens strewn across the floor are dead, save for the faint reflections in their shiny, black surfaces.

The work was partly inspired by an internet video of terrorists erecting screens in the Iraqi city of Mosul for the purpose of screening Isis propaganda. The installation ‘hijacks’ the screens and renders them useless. The artist is intrigued by the ways people express social grievances through inanimate objects.
