   Exodus And Conflict, The Right To Hope / SANTI GUERRIERI the saints are coming...

SANTI GUERRIERI the saints are coming...

Vesna Bursich
22 Ottobre – 31 Maggio 2018

The Saints Warriors of Vesna Bursich are contemporary icons, saints with a real arsenal: assault rifles, infrared viewers, grenades, landmine until to the most terrible weapon, the atomic bomb.
Creating an army of armed saints is a real conceptual explosion. The artist, however, doesn’t want to use the weapon of provocation, but rather to engage in acute reflection on the significance of religious icons and the arms race from which a profound work on the stratification of the meanings that past history, present, and religion they offer us. Vesna Bursich declares a common illness, a statement against an epoch tormented by wars and conflicts.
On display 60 unpublished works made between 2016 and 2017, including a precious selection of oil painted icons on table with gold leaf.
