Circle of the Tyrants 2008




Jonathon Velardi’s Fortune Teller easily assumes centre stage: a bright and mesmeric video work presented on four large screens, each split diagonally into numerous diamonds. The video undulates in a pattern across the diamonds: a kaleidoscope of gyrating women, bejewelled men, shiny cars and naked flesh that dissolve in and out of a pattern of colour and movement. Velardi uses the colour saturation and visual excess of many music videos as a palette of shots expounding everything profligate and extravagant about the hip hop ‘life’.
