The Crying Wrestler

This video of a young beautiful wrestler crying after he loses a match suggests how hard failure is when you are young and haven't experienced much of life and its disappointments. In 2009, New Orleans-based artist Skylar Fein exhibited it as part of his show on youth culture at the New Orleans Museum of Art. Fein combines the found imagery with the sentimental Nino Rota score for the 1968 film Romeo and Juliet. Artist and photographer Slava Mogutin posted it on his Facebook page earlier this evening, which is where I first saw it.
