In the works for this exhibition, R. T. Snott explores the relations, contrasts and possibilities between textile as a medium of expression and the themes of violence, aggression and peace.

By subverting fascist iconography, these artworks are meant to be paths for non-violence. As they present themselves, they evoke different forms of weapons that cannot be used to cause harm in that intended way, since they are inactivated by the soft nature of the wool used to create them.

Exploring ideas of soft power, domination, vengeance and punishment while juxtaposing them with folk magic and superstition themes, Snott aims to create fun art objects that are inviting to the touch, opening themselves to sensorial exploration and connecting people who are present and questioning their own projections and ideas of violence and care.
