Glasspeace, work presented at @bugnoartgallery
among the socing slogans theorized by orwell in 1984, the first recited “war is peace”. even today war is used to promote peace. the ever more frequent use of expressions such as “exporting democracy”, “humanitarian mission” and “smart bombs” prevents us from recognizing the basic incoherence: when military force is used to promote democracy, the means are in clear contradiction with the noble purpose.
glasspeace is a jersey that speaks about this incoherence: the seven colors of the peace flag immediately evoke a pacifist message, but among the panels that compose it, there is a reproduction of a world war ii grenade. in order to highlight the dichotomy between war and peace, glasspeace plays with contrasts: between fullness and emptiness, between matter and air, between color and non-color.
