In audiovisual pieces, objects and critical texts, Lauriano shows how violent relations maintained between the institutions of power and State control - such as the police, prisons, embassies, borders - and subjects shape the subjective processes of society. Thus, his production seeks to bring to the surface historical traumas relegated to the past, confined files, in a proposal to collectively revise and rework history.
