Alfredo Jaar: Be Afraid…

Be Afraid of the Enormity of the Possible - Alberta Jaar neon installation

The Sound of Silence, a major installation work by acclaimed New York based artist, architect and filmmaker Alfredo Jaar. Jaar’s works often address issues around how Africa is represented in the media. This particular work takes, as its point of departure, South African photographer Kevin Carter’s Pulitzer Prize winning photograph of a starving child being stalked by a vulture in Sudan (2006).
