She reported him but they killed her anyway‘. This is the name of the new work of the Italian artist AleXsandro Palombo. Exhibited in the streets of Paris, this series of works portrays Marine Le Pen, Anne Hidalgo, Ursula von der Leyen, Kamala Harris, Kate Middleton, Christine Lagarde y la Reina Letizia as victims of gender violence.
And this November 25 in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento de Los Alcázares (Murcia), the Italian artist will launch the global campaign, framed in the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Specifically, the different mupis (Acronym for Urban Furniture as Information Point) distributed throughout the town will be those that show the different works made by Palombo.
«Violence against women is a violation of human rights which remains largely unpunished. Only a few perpetrators of violence face a trial and even fewer are convicted “, the artist has expressed according to the website of the town’s City Council, in order to raise awareness about this global problem that affects thousands of women every year throughout the world.
For this reason, the Italian creator, as we say, uses faces known around the globe to put a face (bruised) and warn of the consequences of violence against women, using women for his montages such as those mentioned above or others such as Michelle Obama, Brigitte Macron, Aung San Suu Kyi, Sonia Gandhi o Angela Merkel.
Contemporary artist and activist AleXsandro Palombo had already gone viral through previous campaigns against gender-based violence. Used to seeing his works against this scourge in which he shows female characters of all kinds, as was the case with the Disney princesses, victims of this violence, for example.
This past January, which is when this new campaign began with female leaders or characters linked to power, and in statements to ‘Il messaggero’, the activist explained that he wanted to use the image of these powerful women to “take a step forward, the message What I want to give is: attention, the first to use violence are men with power, as has been demonstrated in the attacks on Ocaso and with Brigitte Macron ».
