Prophets

The Prophets place soldiers in expres­sive poses in front of mortar explo­sions. Above or below them hovers a prophecy, a quote from a popu­lar war movie. The mythol­o­giz­ing func­tion of war movies reveals a kind of Eternal Return, in which the sacred intrudes upon our world with its arche­types and mythic heroes. These are the narra­tive arcs that help define our complex atti­tudes towards war. Sometimes, the soldier stands in front of an astral chart, thus ques­tion­ing what role fate may play in the life of indi­vid­u­als as nations go to war.
