Between Life and Art: Éric Nado Typewriter Gun Prints
Today’s release of Éric Nado’s typewriter gun prints had been scheduled months ago. In light of last week’s tragic, catastrophic and devastating Las Vegas shooting, we hesitated to share this news. It initially seemed to be insensitive, and ill-advised. However, we chose to go on with the release. Éric Nado’s work is all about the futility of weapons and arms and ultimately, the power of thought, speech and communication: words. Currently, there is a resurgence of a heated debate: whether gun-use and possession should be restricted in the United States, as is the case in Canada, or Australia, for example. We believe Eric’s work is highly eloquent in this regard.
