Brothers and Sisters creative duo have teamed up with anonymous German street art collective Mentalgassi, to create art installations for Amnesty International. Called Making the Invisible Visible
, the posters highlight the case of Troy Davis, a 42-year-old man who has been on death row for 19 years in the USA, despite serious doubts about his conviction.
Amnesty International maintain that no physical evidence links Davis to the crime and seven out of nine witnesses have since changed or retracted their testimony, some citing police coercion. Despite the doubts surrounding his guilt, he still faces execution.
The posters are displayed on fence railings. Front on, you see nothing but bars. Troy’s haunting face only becomes visible from an angle.
