The common language to the informational indexes and the windows of museums, here serve to catalog a range of tools used throughout history as attack and detention devices used by groups self entitled of “avengers” - individuals gathered in defiance of law to execute punishments.

Comprising museum apparatuses, like, windows and glossaries, the series of works “Suplicio” offers a historical overview of this type of activity, and indicates a constant state of barbarism and its uncontrollable surges of collective hysteria. Revealing then the perverse creativity of these operations that promote lynching and executions in the public square - in a disturbing update of colonization. Often endorsed by the opinion of the majority of the population, and by manifestations of authorities and figures of the mass media, these operations, invent, instrumentalize and subvert everyday objects with the sole purpose of summary punishment.
