Nado’s contemporary industrial sculptures are made with objects that are part of our collective memory, such as sewing machines that he uses to pay homage to feminism. Another important object part of our past are Olivetti’s typewriters: with Typewriter Guns (2012) Éric wants “to trigger the idea that words are stronger than weapons and shape history.”
