PAIN ON THE WALL - ICONOCLASM

 

Iconoclasm is the destruction of religious icons and other images or monuments for religious or political motives. In time, the word, usually in the adjectival form, has also come to refer to aggressive statements or actions against any well-established status quo. It is a frequent component of major political or religious changes.

 

Drs Kitty van Loo wrote on this work: "Scratches and cracks admittedly reduce the function of the portrait depicted faces but also add an intensification of perception. They make you alert for much more than the mapped displays. They evoke associations and create new relationships with the reality of perception.". Photography made among others in : Cairo, Alexandrie, Arles, Beying.
