Description: Milano: Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro, 2011. 28cm., pbk., 141pp. prof. illus. Italian-English text. Exhibition catalogue. Summary: Through an original use of papier-mâché, Perino & Vele model forms that allude to news items, themes of social and political denunciation and the distortion of reality by the mass media. Objects of everyday use (holdalls, prams, armchairs), traffic signs (road signs, barriers, signposts) and animals (pigs, camels, bats) become the pretext for focusing the attention of viewers on subjects that are passed over in silence or deliberately forgotten, such as massacres, or violence towards human beings and animals.
