  • blowback

    Polaroids from ‘Blowback’ exhibition at Antigua Casa Haiku Gallery, Barcelona (2008) :
    Inspired by Otto, LaBruce surprised the audience with a special performance of “zombie-terrorist polaroids”. The visitors themselves became the subject of LaBruce’s lens, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The set of polaroids became part of the exhibition once the performance was over and they will be used by the artist in future international exhibitions.
