Pigs Power – 2012 / 14
Installation: 100 ink drawings on paper 15x21cm, 4 stencil on paper 100x100cm
PIGS is the acronym used by international bond analysts, academics, and the economic press. It refers to the economies of Portugal, Italy, Greece, and Spain in regards to the sovereign debt market. This project presents a selection of signs and posters used in demonstrations between 2012 and 2014. In the display each row shows the timeline of iconography used in these countries during these two years. The drawings work as a means of preserving thoughts and feelings expressed by these “communities” through their protests.
