Not My Fault
In this project the raw reality of weapons is put withing the frame of fiction. This is done through their juxtaposition with banal phrases inspired by those, stereotyped, coming from films as well as television series, that are present in our everyday lives.
By putting together this two opposite things – trivial love phrases and tools made to kill – the aim is to create a semantic ambiguity. They seems to dialog with a sort of black humour. At the same time the weapons get a new disturbing voice. In this way it’s possible to reach for a fracture in the common way the spectator links meanings and symbols.
Weapons and films, both part of the daily life of different places, often far from one another, are here in the same frame. The weapons speak with words of fiction, they acquire the role of these fake relationships, becoming parodies of themselves – and showing even more clearly how meaningless is their use, existence and production. Today as in the past.
