Images from the press which have been seen all over the world – La Pietà du Kosovo
(by Georges Mérillon – Gamma, 1990
), La Mort de Mohammed Al Dura
(from a photogram by Talal Abou Rahmeh, 2000
) and the Madonne de Bentalha
(by Hocine Zaourar – AFP, 1997
) – have been an inspiration for Pascal Convert
. Coming from the Mudam Collection
, the three wax sculptures highlight the symbolic power of images, questioning their political and aesthetic dimension as well as their impact on construction, memory and oversight in history. The monograph Lamento
comes with two documentary films.
