Leisurely inspired by the cartoons designed by Alessandro Pignocchi
Politicians desperately seek to throw away their power to concentrate on their shared gardens, whilst chickadee birds enter politics with Molotov cocktails. A burnt-out member of the CRS riot squad gives himself up to a team of journalists who are trying to understand the whole situation. According to the numerous protests that have been spring up, a (r)evolution seems to be afoot. However, what it will amount to remains to be seen.
Imagine a world where opposition between nature and nurture is abolished, one in which animism is the dominant belief system. A system of thought that considers flora, fauna and other natural elements as animate as humans, accepting that they too can possess a soul.
This is the type of situation that Alessandro Pignocchi depicts in his graphic novels, “just to make my friends laugh”. He also says that “it does us some good to imagine fictions where the changes that we would like to see in the world are illustrated”.
Since the world is already absurd, we must answer it in the same tone.
