Clement Lambelet – Two Donkeys In A War Zone
The work 'Two donkeys in a war zone' finds its source in a video of the U.S. Army available on Youtube. A drone follows an attack against an IS camp. Between two explosions, the infrared camera briefly highlights two donkeys. This intrusion of two animals unintentionally witnessing human violence had Clement Lambelet look for drone strike videos produced by the U.S., Afghan or British army with moments or details that do not belong to the combat but are instead a part of "normal life". These photographs of operative videos, supporting military propaganda, show the conflict through the drone’s eye.
