Douceur / Douleur – Colorful and harmless weapons for child soldiers

2015-10-20 // art

Douceur / Douleur, French for Softness / Pain, is the latest satirical project of duo Zim and Zou, based in Nancy, who imagined a series of soft and colorful weapons by mixing paper art and felt. This project was designed to raise awareness about the situation of child soldiers, used in the various conflicts around the world. The tragic fate of these children inspired this ironic duality between the sweetness of innocence and the violence of the weapons they’re forced to use, turning these harmless weapons into a message of peace. I also suggest you take a look at the previous projects of Zim and Zou.
