Art work Description:
"Conqueror (Gangnam Style)" depicts a figure performing the notorious dance move while wearing a mask of Vajrabhairava, a wrathful form of Manjushri. Commenting on the work, Sherpa said: “The Vajrabhairava may seem like an odd pairing with an international pop culture sensation but we live in a disposable culture where anything long-lived is unusual. In Korea, the song exposed an ordinary man’s attempt to integrate within the new materialism of his home. ‘Gangnam Style’ is continually being transformed beyond this original meaning – as it spreads globally, individuals have been re-transmitting the song using the lexicon from their own culture. The dance’s addictive beat and silly moves have allowed people the freedom to open up to discussions on otherwise serious subject matters while at the same time outwardly seeming to be light-hearted and fun. Contemporary artists have embraced this medium to discuss freedom of expression with the help of Amnesty International. In this Tibetan manifestation, the dance mirrors a new global consciousness originating from the desperation felt by self-immolating Tibetans.”
