Capital Myth by Davin Watne

Capital Myth by Davin Watne

In 2015 Davin participated in my project ‘Consumer’ that examined the influence of capitalism on the visual culture. With generous support from The Lipman Miliband Trust, advertising space around Cardiff city centre was purchased and populated with artworks that critique consumerism and capitalism. The artworks employ the methods of enticement that are often found in adverts but will invite people to think about the pervasiveness of capitalist consumption rather than impel them to buy something.
