Mythologies: Propaganda and Commerce
This exhibition opens Friday, September 5, 2008 and features works from his popular Gods of Commerce series, re-combinations of mythological icons which have been appropriated by marketers in their attempts to sell various products. Added to this, his new Propaganda series has widened the net - from products to ideology and the ‘permeable nature of truth’ –continuing the theme but focusing on the selling of “truth” rather than products. While the connection to Pop Art in this new work remains strong, Hansen has revisited the consumerist vs. capitalist argument and enlarged it to bring into focus the irony of polemic truths living side-by-side on the same object.
