As stated by the art critic and writer, as well as scientific curator of the exhibition, Giorgio Agnisola, The Bounty KillArt one “It is a world […] marked by the continuous reference to intellectual speculations, divertissement, meditative ideas, founded in the elastic, permeable fabric, metamorphic of the composition “.

And it is precisely the citation of famous classic works invested with a verve, sometimes ironic, sometimes desecrating, and other times irreverent, that characterizes the work of the collective. A real roller coaster that takes the observer between the peaks of classical art and those of pop culture.
