WE, THE RICH

Installation

 

How to talk about economical and social inequalities?

 

In this work, a container - an element that crosses the globe transporting goods - is seen as a symbol of an ultra-capitalist society.

 

A golden bar is extruded from its interior.

 

The title "We, the rich" refers to a common assumtion in Switzeralnd that "in this country there is so much money". A belief reaffirmed and repeated almost like a mantra, that resonates to create a certain national identity. A picture of how inequal forces and richness are distributed on our global society.
