Anti-Christs is the continuation of an ongoing project by Melbourne-based artist Tony Garifalakis that examines the idea of the Anti-Christ and, more specifically, the attempts made to identify and name him/her. Utilising information gathered from evangelical Christian and conspiracy theory sources, it presents us with a vast collection of candidates – heads of state, royalty, pontiffs, pop singers, bankers – vying for the title of the Anti-Christ. Presented as a series of digitally manipulated found images and mixed media works Anti-Christs incites debate surrounding the concept of ‘good versus evil’ by highlighting the tendency for judgement or demonisation that such a notion involves.
