Description: The original image is a photo of the dictator Kim Jong-un. It can appear as it is disturbing or even disturbing or revolting for a Westerner who lives in a space of relative freedom. The great helmsman is smiling broadly, surrounded by his many admirers. Everyone applauds in a general movement of jubilation. The cult of appearance under cover of exactions, violence and arbitrariness. It is a game of fools.
Genesis: At the beginning, the reproduction of a photo with the intention of diverting it without precise goal. Then the meeting with manga characters with big joyful eyes. The scene of jubilation is diverted to appear in a westernized world. Is the dictator visiting a free country for a show of which he has the secret? Has the West finally become a tyranny? Has North Korea conquered the world? There is no real intention to create a beautiful image: the numerous characters are not very well developed. They are just ants and do not deserve as such, a high-flying treatment. The few mobile phones reveal a possible space of freedom. But aren't the invisible networks themselves muzzled by the power in this space? The green of the uniform dominates the color space with pink as a counterpoint.
