Intelligence of Evil by Andrea Galvani
The Intelligence of Evil project documents a series of actions the artist produced using military grade smoke bombs while working in the mountainous regions of Austria, Switzerland and Italy. Intelligence of Evil #5 and #6 are portraits of the artist’s father, taken on the Val Senales glacier at an altitude of about 2800 meters. In these images, the black smoke envelops his body and his disappearance is frozen in time. The dense smoke penetrates and fractures the white landscape, thereby transforming the natural surrounding beauty and altering the perceived of the depth of field.
