In this series of paintings, Fares CACHOUX questions us about our relationship to war, weapons, power relations and death. He voluntarily plays on the discrepancy between the signifier and the signified, introducing a shock of perception that destabilises.
Fares CACHOUX dresses violence and death with an aesthetic camouflage of light polka dots evoking childhood and pop culture.
Is he trying to make them more desirable in this way or, on the contrary, to warn us to beware of their disturbing normalisation?
Whatever the answer, there is an ontological violence in human beings that culture aims to educate.
