Adel Abdessemed: conflit / conflict

Two ivory sculptures surrounded by drawings depicting soldiers in action. In the blink of an eye, these two figures evoke two famous icons of suffering: the "Napalm Girl," a totemic image of the Vietnam War, and
"the Warsaw Ghetto Boy," a symbol of the extermination of the Jews in Europe and of Nazi violence. But what are they doing here, together, now? Auschwitz and Vietnam, Warsaw and Trang Bang-what are we to make
of this unlikely combination?
