You also find a sound installation comprising three paintings and a sound piece. The paintings are ‘restoration’ paintings made directly on printed sheets of a raptor from “Jurassic Park”, and on Elsa from “Frozen“ and on a minion from “Despicable Me” -- reminiscent of the naive “botched” restoration of Ecce Homo by Elias Garcia Martinez in Spain, popularized in media around 2013. The audio piece is primarily a spoken dialog between Elsa and the raptor, played through speakers behind the sheet paintings. The dialog is punctuated by long pauses where the minion sleeps with snores and some spoken minionese dialog as if from its sleep, which wakes Elsa and the raptor and they work from being strangers to Elsa giving the raptor advice about her acting career, to the raptor stealing Elsa’s next acting gig, to them fighting it out, and resolving it through mutual feelings of being trapped.
