Instalation “bad religion”
Novembre 2005 Galerie “Weisser Elefant” Berlin, Germany

The dogs-installation is about the conflicts based on religions or nationalism.
The dogs are constructed over the old fashion wooden swing horses that children play with, a toy that is familiar in many cultures. The toy represents innocence, but it has turned into something nasty. Religion or nationalism, which had good intentions in the outset, may turn into brutal fights.
The swinging movements also remind us that these forces come and go, creating destruction on the way and not bringing us forward.
