The image used by Christian Eisenberger is that of “Vietnam napalm”, the emblematic photo of the Vietnam War showing a child, covered in burns, running towards the camera of the photographer Nick Ut one day in June 1972.
The artist breaks the scene down then recreates it, inserting the despairing, life-size figures into our daily urban landscape. The physical crossing, the actual immersion in this horrific scene, inevitably stimulates a strong reaction from passers-by.
