Paul McCarty’s ”A&E” VR-experiments are a part of a larger project with the same name from 2019, presented on various media. The project is set up as a film series, drawing sessions and a Virtual Reality art piece. The term “A&E” is short for: Adolf & Eva; Adam & Eve; Arts & Entertainment.
The piece finds Paul McCarthy turned into Adolf Hitler/Adam and the actress Lilith Stangenberg as Eva Braun/Eve. Adolf is is the essence of toxic, predatorial masculinity while Eve is both the lover, mother and daughter. This hybrid reality invites us to question our state of mind and the way we live. In a time where America’s ugly sides are more visible than ever, McCarrthy reveals the downfall under the conventions.
