An army of Him (2019)

Video (Duration 1:16)

Salvador Dali in Dimitris Gkika's video work An army of Him is multiplied. The image that, thanks to the Netflix series about the robbery of the Royal Mint of Spain, has become a symbol of resistance in the world of hyper-liberal postmodernism, which in itself has an extremely ironic potential, is used by Gkikas to build a digital army - a metamorphosing composition of pop-up windows, a specific type of violence within surveillance capitalism - of drawing our attention, currently the most precious currency. → Curatorial text from the 19th Media Art Biennale WRO.
