Lot68: Virna Pasquinelli


The Knife Thrower, 2013

Wire, Tulle, Laser cut acrylic mirror and Swarowski, 36cmx30cm without head 64cmx30cm with head
Artist Statement: With my work I want to represent a government that like a reckless, myopic, unexperienced knife thrower has failed, betrayed and killed its people. A government that has lost its focus. The panels symbolise the one used on the Grenfell tower. Showing the gap between the rich and the poor: The poor are invisible, marginalised and are being killed because of austerity and the rich can only see the fragmented reflection of themselves and the distorted reflection of this society.
