The Revolution Starts Now!

The University of Queensland Art Museum

AES+F achieved world-wide recognition and acclaim in the Russian Pavilion at the 52nd la Biennale di Venezia for their provocative work Last Riot, the second in this series of large scale multichannel video installations was The Feast of Trimalchio. This catalogue presents glossy stills and photographs from both exhibitions. These two works presents a vision of a glamorised revolution, with beauty, style and wealth in the foreground. However, underscoring these idyllic, unblemished scenes is a critique of excessive global consumption.
