24 mayo - 26 junio 2012



According to a July 2007 article in The Guardian, the Russian parliament passed a law giving energy giants Gazprom and Transneft carte blanche to have armed forces that go beyond conventional security guards. The law allows these companies to articulate armies without limit of weapons. Based on this real event, PSJM launches a "political fiction" project, which is presented in the form of video, sculpture and drawing.

The video “Corporate Armies” is a trailer with a duration of 2.44 minutes. This story, made in 3D, describes a world ruled by corporations where marketing and totalitarianism come together to create an anti-utopia that aims to make the viewer reflect on the fate of globalized capitalism once it is freed from any limitations imposed by the institutions. democratic.
The three-dimensional aspect of the project is covered by the sculptures of these corporate soldiers made with 3D digital technology and which function as auratic merchandising.
The project is completed with the series of "historical drawings". Large format heroic drawings that combine a predominant Marvel style, with the European origin of our team and a certain Manga aftertaste. This style indebted to mass culture adapts to the preference for baroque composition in its strong lines and a romantic mysticism whose notion of the sublime points to war and its power of visual fascination. The futuristic heritage of this beauty-war relationship is used here to identify a certain spectacular seduction technique used by the mass media and the entertainment industry.
