Bright Star :: Thomas Galler

Galler’s work series “Bright Star” presents a collection of images depicting a formation of Egyptian and U.S. fighter jets flying over the pyramids of Gizeh. The conflict between Egypt and Israel, and the Camp David Peace Agreement are cited as the historical context. By way of stark contrast Thomas Galler had the subjects printed on postcards and distributed in Cairo. Placing jets deployed in military action in a touristic setting attests to the artist’s ironic treatment of forms of representation, but also calls into question societal norms and their controlling by the media presence. (ilikethisart)
