The bombs Petros Efstathiadis creates (and then photographs) are harmless and absurd. They are made out of soap, flowers, light bulbs or sponges. In fact, his bombs are made only to undermine the concept of the bomb. His bombs are like children’s toys — play that refers to war and terror while being perfectly harmless.

There was a period of tension and despair in Greek society as the result of the economic crisis – and in a period of global confusion in general – Petros Efstathiadis’ bombs are a powerful and pacific answer to the absurdity we got ourselves into.
