Jon Rafman, Open Heart Warrior, Three-channel HD video, sculptural installation, 13:30, 2016
In Rafman's Open Heart Warrior, virtual landscapes evoking the iconography of fantasy play on three screens, while unsettling and disturbing images from violent computer games enter and exit the frame, often in the viewer’s peripheral vision. Images of secular trees, majestic mountains, and imperious skies are replaced by grotesque brutality. Rafman's universe is completely devoid of hope. Much like ours.
Installation view, Sprueth Magers, Berlin (Germany)
