Fernando Arias

Lego Coffin (Homage to the Children of the Drug War). 2000
Lego and plywood
28.5 x 190.5 x 70 cm
Arias enables us to experience the game of death by building a coffin out of Lego pieces in the national colors of Colombia: the child’s dream of Lego is transformed into a coffin whose top bears not a cross but a white line symbolizing cocaine.
