‘Out Of Business’ – Boccanegra (info)

“Out Of Business” by Boccanegra is an art installation of 9 bullet and schrapnel riddled shutters gathered by myself from the destroyed city-parts of Mousul, Iraq.

I chose these shutters (that are used to close shops at night) to visualize the fact that it is again the ‘man-in-the-street’ (who owns and works in those little shops) that is the victim of the war. Some shutters have markings on them that were made by ISIS. The colour also indicates what kind of shop it is. For example: the pink one was supposedly a toy shop (the building was destroyed, so I can’t say for sure).

All shutters were taken with permission.

Kind regards

Boccanegra
