(English / Castellano)
Mural designed at the Swab Art Fair in Barcelona, May possibly 2012.
Nicola Tanno lost his eye from the impact of a rubber bullet fired by a Mosso d’Esquadra (Catalan police officer) in this city. Because 1990, and only due to the use of rubber bullets, 23 folks have lost an eye in Spain. Because the starting of the year the Mossos of Barcelona have added the two latest victims.
Art fairs have a way of becoming an oasis set aside from the reality that is becoming lived. I present this piece in an try to transcend the banality, the playful complacency and the baseless shock.

Mural realizado en la Feria de Arte Swab de Barcelona, Mayo 2012.
Nicola Tanno perdió su ojo por el impacto de una bala de goma disparada por un Mosso d’Esquadra (oficial de la policía catalana) en esta misma ciudad. Desde 1990, y sólo a causa del uso de las balas de goma, 23 personas han perdido un ojo en España. En lo que va del año los Mossos de Barcelona han sumado las dos últimas víctimas.
Las ferias de arte suelen volverse oasis al margen de la realidad que se está viviendo. Presento esta obra intentando trascender la banalidad, la complacencia lúdica y el shock infundado.
