Publisher's Description
For their project Action Half Life - the name of an actual computer game - the Russian-born collective AES+F recruited young teenagers from modeling agencies to act out the roles of conquering heroes and heroines in this conceptual battlefield. Set against the rugged backdrop of the Sinai Desert, there is no sign of an enemy, nor any of the usual mess or horror of war. These children look like children, but they do not appear as children. Equipped with a steely array of futuristic-looking armaments, they are airbrush-clean and kitted out in crisp white clothing. AES+F has created frozen-in-the-moment tableaux that radiate an unsettling but awe-inspiring combination of sheer beauty and mounting unease. AES+F comprises conceptual architects Tatiana Arzamasova and Lev Evzovitch, graphic designer Evgeny Svyatsky and fashion photographer Vladimir Fridkes. The group is showing work in this year's Venice Biennale, from June until late November. Printed in a first edition of 1,000 copies, with an essay written by the film director Aleksander Zeldovich.
