Perry Nodelman and Susan Stewart, among others, point out the relevance of Claude Lévi-Strauss’s dictum that all works of art may be viewed as, essentially, miniatures.
Stewart, whose highly theoretical On Longing includes, in a chapter on miniatures, examinations of doll houses and miniature books as well as more conventional texts, considers the miniature to be “a metaphor for the interior space and time of the bourgeois subject”.
Nodelman, more practical in orientation, identifies the main reason for this appeal: “So when these small beings prevail over insurmountable odds, as they always do, they represent a potent version of the wish-fulfillment fantasy: the very small can triumph over the dangerously large, the very powerless over the exceedingly powerful”.

The letter/number combination ‘AK 47’ is one of the most used abbreviations in conflict reporting. The image of this automatic assault rifle – designed by Mikhail Kalashnikov – is perhaps one of the most recognizable of all guns.
The ice bullets of DISTANT SUFFERING XXI | i.d. of a shared bullet are made by using a mold that claims to be a magazine of an AK-47, produced by Etsy in Hong Kong.


The first badge of this multiple was presented in June 2021 during my exhibition in Luxfer Open Space in Česká Skalice in the Czech Republic.
During the Juxtapose Art Fair (1-2 August, 2021) in Arhus / Denmark, this muliple was presented for the second time.
The collegue artists of Studio44 show the timelaps of the melting bullet on their window in Stockholm, Sweden, from December 10, 2021 untill January 6, 2022.
