Cult of Personality
Cult of Personality aims to make the viewer think about the techniques of mass media, propaganda, the big lie, spectacle, the arts, patriotism, and government-organised demonstrations and rallies to create an idealized, heroic, and worshipful image of a leader, often through unquestioning flattery and praise.
As a hero to some and a villain to others, Muammar Muhammad Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi reigned over Africa’s Libya; from a Coup d’état in 1969, to his very public death in 2011.
Almost instantly, anyone can view an image, comment on a person or a country, and express their opinions. While simultaneously forgetting all the other things in which their nation may be involved in. I have used a lacing technique in this piece as a visual metaphor to represent cover ups, or veiling of secrets.
