Thanks to the Nil Nil series by Shadi Ghadirian, war and violence can suddenly break out in your home and when it does, those weapons will be found hidden among the most unsuspecting objects.

Blood-stained daggers lie alongside tea plates, a bullet nestles in a cigarette case, and most randomly of all, a bomb lies embedded in fresh linen and in the middle of a double bed.

Unquestionably macabre, and rather brilliant.

Implications - The severity and regularity of violence, especially in the home, is often difficult to convey and gets hidden in a sea of heartbreaking causes of equal detriment and importance. A series like this is a visually enticing and bold way to attract attention to these tragic every day occurrences that is sure to make waves in the art world.
