Tolerance–In Tolerance

An electronic heart opens the projection, letting red drops fall; a rainbow closes it, with its intense colors of hope and peace. They are two recurring icons in the artist's work that are transformed into numerical signs in a digital age. This work on Tolerance and its mirror, Intolerance, has been restated by the Italian artist thinking about the laborious but necessary Peace Process currently underway in Colombia. The photographs that appear there are not meant to be beautifully aesthetic, but rather a quick and repetitive, almost obsessive review of the documents. Images of irreproachably painful human faces that we see in the media every day, too many times a day. They are victims of wars and violence, whose suffering we too easily internalize instead of shouting: enough!
