opened last week in adn galleria, barcelona: “we don´t need another hero“, the latest solo of eugenio merino. eugenio’s new installations present iconic objects from warfare & military environment transformed to new narratives by positioning, add-ons or direct amendments. beautiful, flashy & absurd, they turn their dramatic context into sarcasm and vice versa.
the works of the show include “peace medals” (collection of war medals which use the peace sign, see detail above), the sculptural group “no return policy” (two ‘packed’ soldiers in express mail service’s boxes), “victory or death” (installation of hands with two fingers making the peace sign, rolled up with barbed wire) & our absolute favourite: “damocle’s sword”, a missile hung on colored balloons.
on display till december 11 & a ‘must-see’! :-)
