JOÃO LOURO – LITTLE BOY from ArtWorks on Vimeo.

Linguistic Ground Zero, João Louro’s new project created for Project Room, reflects on this historic moment of inflection in which art and society seem to coincide in relation to the necessity to put an end to everything – the two World Wars and the artistic vanguards.

His proposal, a reproduction of ‘Little Boy’ – the first atomic bomb in history – with recorded messages, is simple and forceful: destruction, graffiti, poetic and written references come together, providing one of those moments in which art and artists carry out an exercise of complex thinking.
