Anxiety, 2011

 

This is the 2011 version of Anxiety, an earlier piece by the same name was made in 2006. Dressed in pink and yellow sweaters, these men appear to attack a hidden enemy, stepping into the blue haze. They could have been random guests at a party moments earlier, but they are ready to fight now with a belt and a stick as weapons. There’s a sense of fear for the unknown, for aggression towards anything out of the ordinary that seems to live up quite easily.
