Armed with fever and good health - Youth, beauty and existential crises from the Austrian painting duo, Asgar/Gabriel.
Artists: Asgar/Gabriel (the artist collaborative Daryoush Asgar and Elisabeth Gabriel)
Asgar/Gabriel are renowned for imagining epic dioramas depicting youthful bacchanals and menacing fantasy-play. Combining the conventional canvas and references to history painting with the language of mass media and advertising, their works are grand narratives of multifarious image-appropriation that simultaneously titillate and unnerve.
