“Alter Senator” is a limited edition book of drawings, video stills and writing from Willehad Eilers. It includes a DVD edition of the same size featuring 8 “Alter Senator” videos. These videos are viewable at www.waynehorse.com. Like the book, only 38 copies are available for purchase.
The book compliments the “Alter Senator” video series, following the Senator on a reflective journey into, and around, the illusory concept of contemporary success. 'Be yourself!,' 'Nothing is impossible!' and other similar inspirational (+ empty) mantras echo in a world of widening inequality, dysfunctional political systems, social alienation and 100 proof cocktails of crisis.
Eilers’ crude-style works offer us anthropological insight into his observations of the flawed human condition and its perpetual evolution. He unflinchingly presents us with images that convey the disposition of the modern individual towards grotesque, even masturbatory obsessions. Underlying his practice is an artistic methodology that recalls the theorist James Clifford’s concept of “ethnographic surrealism”: he assails the quotidian situations that we think are familiar, and renders them unrecognisable. By mounting successive challenges to the hegemonic boundaries of our imagination, Eilers provokes his viewers into directly interacting with his highly unique works.
