VLADIMIR POUTINE IN A SANDBOX ?
A morning surprise signed James Colomina!
This Thursday, June 23, the street-artist from Toulouse installed his new sculpture in front of the Senate, symbol of French power.
“The dictator sitting on his toy tank” then moved to the sandbox to provoke a dialogue with the children. A staging that ended with a confrontation with a very determined baby!
“This sculpture aims to denounce the absurdity of war and the courage of children in the face of violent and catastrophic situations that they did not start” – confides the artist
Putin will see red … the signature color of the artist now takes a political and satirical dimension.
This work has a highly symbolic dimension on this day when the European Union was to examine the candidacy of Ukraine. If no decision has yet been taken, James Colomina has made his choice: that of artistic pacifism.
