A Powerful User Participation Installation

Whether you agree with the moral stance presented here or not, this is one of the most powerful installations that I seen.  In the main hall of The National Library of France two screens facing one another display an executioner with a rifle on one and the convicted on the other.  When a participant takes a stand and stands in between the two, the executioner lowers his rifle and the other man raises his head.

This work was produced by the Marcel Agency.
