  • About the work

    Wargames is ongoing project made of a series of artworks and installations which reflect on the persuasive power of the image (either real or fake) in the context of conflict. In the latest conflicts in the Middle East, images were used for various reasons, either to justify military action, while others were involved in the process of peace talks. Overall images are tools which when used can have various consequences, which has turned these conflicts in a game of images rather than solely a struggle of forces.
