Short-form Works from Vs.
About the Collection
Paul Pfeiffer’s first NFT collection, Vs., transports the viewer to the boxing ring and highlights found footage from two highly anticipated historical boxing matches — Pacquiao vs. Horn and Pacquiao vs. Mayweather. To create each piece, Pfeiffer has taken existing televised footage and digitally erased Pacquiao’s opponent, leaving the viewer to witness a man struggling, resisting, suffering, and at times prevailing over a ghostly foe who is as unseen as he is undeniably present.
More than an image of sports, Pfeiffer brings his unsparing eye to a culture of cameras and media distribution that ultimately lands, painfully, in a body. The collection presents us with an incredibly evocative and moving work by one of the great visual artists of our time.
