He Who Gets Slapped (2015)
Soma is a new series of artworks by Lanfranco Aceti exhibited at Supermarket 2015 in Stockholm which focuses on the use of the human body and the contradictions and failures of contemporary social politics in Europe. Soma consists of an installation, a series of drawings, texts (oil paint on canvas) and a performance. The performance “He who Gets Slapped” will provide the public with the ‘opportunity’ to slap, for a fee of 500 euro, a ‘worker, protester and a migrant’ who will be standing on a ‘preaching’ box (also known as soap box).
