Metal Steel for Wall Mount
120 x 120cm


Marie until 2/6/19 In this work, Auguste incorporates an amalgamation of various pop-culture icons and symbols, such as Marilyn Monroe and Captain America, which are superimposed onto a cutout of Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Marilyn Monroe was an actress who despite her incredible fame tragically died young after struggling with many issues, while Captain America is an incredibly popular and idolised superhero character. By superimposing these images onto the forms of two much loved cartoon characters, Auguste makes a statement about the way we perceive prominent figures in the ever-pervasive media we consume, the pedestals we place them on, and the difference their idolised facades can be from reality.
