Adel Abdessemed

A pair of boxing gloves made of white cement hangs from the wall. The title links this object to the prizefighters who are urged to continue deli- vering cement-hard blows. By replacing cloth gloves, designed to soften the blow, with cement, Abdessemed connects this sport to murder, even if the whiteness of the gloves makes them seem lighter, masking the danger they incarnate.
