The Killing Us S̶o̶f̶t̶l̶y̶ project is a triptych about the Chlordecone tragedy affecting the French West Indies based on the Japanese pictorial maxim of the three wise monkeys “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”. It symbolises how the French Government pressurised by a minority of influent large planters behaved towards the French Caribbean population over more than 30 years. Except in this case, ignoring or underestimating a mass contamination by pesticide lead to heavy consequences affecting us today and centuries to come.
With the use of golden blood, it is suggested that while our people are bleeding and dying, all "they" see is gold. The real poison being greed, profit by any means necessary without concerns about the collateral damage on your own turf.
