The artwork “Pokemon” created by Remy Aillaud is a wall sculpture measuring approximately 80x80x15cm. It is made using handcrafted steel and mixed media techniques and is presented in a frame.
The sculpture depicts a vest full of dynamite with various characters from the Pokemon universe attached to it. This image can be interpreted in different ways but suggests a contrast between cute and childlike elements (the Pokemon characters) and a dangerous and potentially lethal object (the vest full of dynamite).
The artwork is a reflection on the complexities of the modern world, including the mixing of unexpected elements and how technology can be used in both positive and negative ways. The sculpture can also be seen as a critique of entertainment culture, which often mixes cheerful and fun elements with violent and dangerous imagery.
Overall, “Pokemon” is a thought-provoking and intriguing artwork that can generate many discussions and reflections.
