Erik Van Der Weijde - Paradiesvogel
Self-published through Erik van der Weijde’s own imprint, 4478zine (Amsterdam), this magazine-style book contains an inventory of heavily rasterized reproductions taken from a publication on German tanks. Ostensibly gathered together as aesthetic objects, the images also signal a broader narrative through their focus on mass-produced, weaponised vehicles and their innate capacity for violence. Implicit in the images is a social and historical commentary on the unity of technology and aggression symbolised by the tanks.
