ABOUT THIS ART:
"The work depicts a squatting soldier intent on aiming for the target he is to shoot at. At first glance, then, the work could convey a message in favor of armed war against an enemy invader. However, if you sharpen your eyes, you can see how long threads start from the shoulders but above all from the barrel of the rifle and are supported by the hand of a puppeteer, placed high up and right above the head of the military. A fierce criticism of the weapons system and the regular army, the same one that, as the work says, is not able to operate autonomously and thinking with its own head, but that is good only to execute orders that are given from above. The result of this attitude can be potentially devastating: people who are not responsible for their actions because they are not able to think with their own heads, led to exchange good for evil and therefore to operate in the name of a consciousness that is not their own." Written by Clara Amodeo
