"The American Soldier" - Rue de Rivoli, Paris - march 2003

20th March the Americans have just invaded Iraq. It is not their first fiasco, on February 1st Challenger, the space shuttle exploded in full flight. To celebrate the event, an American soldier in a space suit -alias Bernard Damien- threatens passers by on a pedestrian crossing on Rue de Rivoli. As a helmet, I reused a plastic AIDS hedgehog evoking the so-called threat of the alleged weapons of mass massive destruction kept by Iraq.
