Carlos Alba I'll Bet the Devil My Head
Londoners are famously divided in their adoration or disdain for foxes. Notably, the social tensions arising from Brexit mirror the bitter animosity between pro- and anti-fox factions. Some perceive urban foxes as a malign aberration. Yet the truth remains that, like humans, foxes adapt to their surroundings and thrive wherever circumstances permit. Carlos Alba’s visual tale metaphorically underlines the shared traits and experiences between humans and foxes, highlighting the disparities among inhabitants of different neighbourhoods in London. In this fable, foxes become the working class, ravens represent an aspect of social control, and the brokers are the elite.
