Bas uses painting, sculpture, video, drawing, and photography to depict a fantasy world that alternately threatens and enchants. This diptych is a film still from a dual-screen video projection Bas created titled Fragile Moments. The video, also in black-and-white, is just over seven minutes long and shows these shark-costumed young men swimming in a circle as if surrounding their prey. The work references the fragility of animal and human life in the food chain, or, more simply, a group of collegial young men with Peter-Pan Syndrome at the play of adolescents.
