The Alain Delorme 'Totems' exhibit in Paris, France is a display of vivid imagery and underlying social commentary. The slightly unsettling images of Alain Delorme's 'Totems' is actually a representation of "migrants' pressures" in other countries.

The Alain Delorme 'Totems' exhibit presents the "increasing fetish with objects" within the series, providing an interesting outlook towards consumerism.

Implications - Art is the Trojan horse of social commentary because it covertly (or overtly) informs viewers while simultaneously amusing or impressing them. With that in mind, creations like these Alain Delorme artworks represent the power of creative imagery in order to communicate what is an otherwise unremarkable point to audiences that might not otherwise be receptive to influence.
