AES+F: Inver­so Mundus

Tri­umph Gallery, Moscow

Inver­so Mundus depicts a world turned upside down. Social scripts are reversed and default stan­dards are reject­ed. Rich beg the poor and women inquisi­tors tor­ture men. A pig guts a butch­er and street-clean­ers lit­ter the streets with rub­bish and refuse. These scenes of absur­di­ty appear as a rein­ter­pre­ta­tion of real­i­ty, a vision of a con­tem­po­rary world mim­ic­k­ing scenes from the medieval carnival.
