WORK EXPLANATIONS

AKET: The fusion of street art and cubism

PEBEO, FLUTUART 2022

 

 Since 2016, this competition has encouraged the discovery of talents from the contemporary and urban artistic scene. with nearly 400 attendees.

 

Through Monopoly, I have ironized and rendered irrational and grotesque any prior attempt to justify war.

 

I present a painting of our absurd society as a battlefield with multiple details on a game board.

 

There is the one who thinks he is the master of the game paradoxically releasing the dove of peace, green soldiers called figurines from our childhood reminding us once again of the inconsistency and misunderstanding of war.

 

There is the box "luck" but also weapons necessary for any war, taxes to be paid illustrating the ritual straitjacket contributing to the war. We are dealing with an ironic web in which I build an indirect argument in order to imagine a way to "monopolize" the world.

 

The cogs of war turned me to the works of Otto Dix, which allowed me to image the cripple who throws a projectile in front of him.

 

Here, dice again highlighting the nonsense and random outcome of a war. In my work, there is no real winner, the only goal is to be the last one standing, the survivor.

 

The big loser is humanity and the title "flower with a gun" symbolizes the courageous attitude that the world has in the face of the unreasonable and insane side of human stupidity.

GRAFF AND WAR, 2022

 

 

The escape

 

In this gloomy and wild camp,

Surrounded by iron walls,

We seem to live in a cage In the middle of a great desert

 

The number 45 corresponds to the date of the end of the war.

 

The number 316 echoes the letters of the runic alphabet used by Nazism mainly the runes Sōwilō, Eihwaz, Tiwaz, Odal and Algiz Joy division: Joy divisions employed female prisoners who served as prostitutes in concentration camps.

 

The women were chosen from among the inmates of the Ravensbruck camp. As compensation, the prostitutes had extra rations and some privileges.

 

The violin: Among the men and women who were locked up and exterminated were musicians, they welcomed the new prisoners to accompany their torture or their march to the gas chambers.

 

The score of the skeleton is reminiscent of the first camp anthems, the Börgermoorlied.
