For the exhibition, Power is a Virus I presented 2 projects: ‘The Executives‘ and the ‘Iconoclashgiftsfeld‘ souvenir shop at Genie de la Bastille, Paris from June 12 to June 24 2018. The Executives are illustrations responding to the financial crisis of 2008. Headless (mostly)men in suits are posed with visualizations of their cognitive processes in place of their heads as well as composed in positions imitating insects, animals or plants. The ‘Iconoclashgiftsfeld’ store is an ironic souvenir shop describing how hyperreality in a ultra-capitalist society reduces all experiences, political movements and ideologies into logos printed on souvenir objects. A project that analyzes globalism, it focuses on how social groups build and destroy visual symbols to assert their power or alter the landscape to reflect their identity.
