A Celestial Warrior from Welcome to Upper Zygonia appears in R is for Revolution


Thanks to Tchello d'Barros for including my collage, A Celestial Warrior of the Zygonian Galaxy in R is for Revolution in the Visual Poetry Museum on Facebook. The exhibitions features 111 artists from 30 countries. I am the only Canadian.

From Tchello:


The participating artists responded - with their works - to the following provocation: “Is there currently space for revolutions? Is there in your heart any revolt against the current status quo? Do we need to change something on our street or in global geopolitics? Will humanity witness any (r)evolution in this century? Can art be a weapon to transform consciences? You don't need to answer these questions, but your art can tell us a little about your imaginary combatant. The project is also a tribute to the bicentennial of the South American revolutionary Anita Garibaldi (1821-1849), the ‘heroine of 2 worlds’. Anita was an amazon, wife, mother, guerriller and revolutionary, fighting in 4 wars in Brazil, Uruguay and Italy. You may choose creat your art under Anita’s miyth, with her figure, name or history!”

 According to the curator,  "this exhibition presents part of the imagination of artists from all continents from their worldview to the theme "Revolution". If in the 19th century the Brazilian guerrilla Anita Garibaldi fought for freedom in South America and Europe, today we have our demands for change, whether on our street or in global geopolitics. May art be as contemporary as the everyday revolutions in our consciences".
