The Promised Land in a Relentless War
We used an outdoor place of an industrial area, mixed with the screen-printed cloth of the photomontage image to counter the superficiality with which all too often we look at the images of disgrace that the fighting causes. The models wear literally the war on their skin as a testimony of impossibility to limit any conflict to a single geographical area or to a single historical period. Only stimulating the sensitivity “of men is possible to fight this guilty emotional stasis and promote a renewed awareness that allows a real empathic understanding of reality“ that flows under our eyes.
The classic painting of Nicolas Poussin has been digitalized and manipulated in form of an exaggerated representation of the war with a technique called photomontage. It means that the original subjects of the painting have been substituted with contemporary subjects placed in a war scenario.
