Ronald Pizzoferrato’s work does not seek to judge those who commit violence in Venezuela, nor to romanticize them. It invites us to think that violence is part of the overall structure of our society, and it has manifestations in every area of it. This violence is part of the history of Venezuela and it is embedded within the way power and justice are exercised, formally or informally, on a daily basis, on all levels of society, from the “highest” to the “lowest” points of symbolic status.
PLOMO presents an exploration of the phenomenon of excessive violence in Caracas; it focuses on the value of the creative actions of people whose lives are determined by violence.
PLOMO is an anthropological work under a semiotic lens, which is to say, an exploration of the ways of being human, taking into account the invisible power structures that connect all things, and how those forces become evident in our expressions and culture.
The work PLOMO by Ronald Pizzoferrato was awarded the Master Design Grant 2020.
