Humour as an Effective Weapon
Lithuania has imposed an inexpensive sanction on Russia by deploying the very effective, but not-so-deadly weapon of humour.
The street in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, where the Russian embassy is located, was renamed "Street of Ukrainian Heroes" and thus pay tribute to Ukraine with every letter and card.
Caroline Rothwell- Comparative Anatomy
The Comparative Anatomy series, 2009, is nickel-plated
Britannia metal, approx 65cm high. “Rothwell has developed a
practice that is both sculptural and two-dimensional, often using unique
self-devised fabrication methods. She creates a fictional world, a geographical
non place that is imagined but a logical consequence of real world actions. She
uses a scientific focus to meditate on the follies of humanity, so that, her
work can be seen as a grand macro-analysis, a scrutiny of human activity and
its effects. Despite the gravity of her interests, they are approached with
humour, erudition, economy and stylistic diversity.”
