Eddie Botha: Take A Terror Test, 2017;


Link in bio


Eddie Botha, the Award-Winning Melbourne, Australia based artist took part in the 2017 Beijing Biennale at the National Art Museum with this artwork. It was a big hit with lots of Interest and acquired by the Museum in the process. The work deals with terrorism and places it as a contradiction with soldiers celebrating with glasses of wine. They are being portrayed as toys, fake and plastic, comical. There are also some females flashing their boobs as a show of sexism that is still active in the world. They also represent vulnerability and attraction, whilst the men soldiers are symbolizing arrogant power.
