Twenty-four images of mutilated bodies folded into the shape of origami beetles, 2014

On Excess

Photo by Ian Wallman.

I interweaved flowers over images of violence. I built a sculpture, covered in paper decorated with photocopied images of violence and shaped into origami beetles. The shrunken heads and the graphic images of violence found on the internet are part of a spectacle of violence that illustrates the treatment of enemies in times of colonisation and ‘Capitalismo Gore’ respectively. The transformation of the images is a response to that spectacle of violence.
