LV child


I think this is a powerful piece of art! It's called LV child by BeeJoir. It's done using spray paint and emulsion on cardboard - it's so bare that it hurts. The forlorn glance of the child is like a threshold, a gateway to all the images of poverty that we encountered in the mass media, etc., but stored deep down inside somewhere. We prefer branded stuff, or stuff that helps us not to see or feel as much. What's the point? It's almost like inertia, a sense of immobility and helplessness that we really can't make a difference. But it's a worthwhile perspective, and we may want to hold on to. You never know, we may be able to make a difference one day in one way or another.
