Civilization (Hell and Heaven)

Civilization (Hell and Heaven) is the first still image released from the Megaplex series by Marco Brambilla. The high resolution digital edition produced exclusively for Sedition derives from Civilization (Megaplex), a video work from the series.

In the Megaplex triptych, Brambilla collages imagery from movies, using an elaborate visual language to create new symbolic relationships which comment on capitalist culture. Hell and Heaven is a commentary on the cultural significance of the dual themes of redemption and salvation. These binary themes have been appropriated and endorsed by the movie industry with religious transcendence and good versus evil narratives. The work both celebrates and satirises the Hollywood blockbuster version of human history as epic entertainment, while the Bosch-like attention to detail presents myriad micro-narratives which are both familiar and unfamiliar.
