MARIO

Pierre Gervois

MARIO (2022, Edition of 1)

“Although I’m familiar with this iconic and beloved video game character, I have never played any Super Mario game. I have always wondered what could be the back story of this character and if he was actually happy with his portrayal of an Italian plumber. MARIO explores my personal obsessions with dealing with the guilt of our ancestors, managing the weight of privilege, and tolerating or denying public humiliations.” – Pierre Gervois
