In the exhibition SHOOT YOU – SHOOT ME artists Modou Dieng and Damien Gilley will examine the relationship between contemporary guerilla warfare, high fashion, and the artists approach to the creative process, while attempting to breakdown the predictability of perceived artistic production, display, and the consumption of mass imagery. The artists of SHOOT YOU – SHOOT ME will serve as rebellious infiltrators, presenting work through a process that mirrors the stages of the marketing of culturally consumable imagery to the en masse public. Their work explores the concept of passive sociological complicity through the exploration of warfare, advertising, role- playing, and the activities of leisure as critique of contemporary culture.
