“Words hurt more than a weapon” is an extremely simple concept, almost banal. A mantra that is repeated to us since childhood, swirling into our heads as if it were a nursery rhyme, but how much are we really aware of the meaning of this essential rule?
The naked and helpless body, with no defence, curled up in front of the void, is bombarded by a whirlwind of words.
Words of war, words of hate, words that hurt.
We try to avoid them, we do not want to hear them, we try to protect ourselves with our bare hands, but that is not enough!
The pain that is perceived has no middle ground, has no nuances and has no colors, everything is cold, nothing warms.
The t-shirt project was born primarily from the idea of exploring, of leaving your comfort zone by always creating new things, experimenting.
Never limiting yourself to what you are able to do or what you are led for, go further.
I have always been strongly convinced that staying put on your beliefs does not lead to growth, change but to artistic staticity. Over the years I have learned to “move”, to study, to snoop more and more, managing to get out of the famous comfort zone.
This is why I created the JeanVen T-shirt line with some of my creations. The fact of seeing and above all wearing your photographic creations is something extremely satisfyng, it gives a certain weight to your work, a sort of greater concreteness.
