MIR­ROR FLAGS

flag­pole hold­er, 3 flag­poles and 3 flags (res­cue blan­kets), dimen­sions variable
2017

From three flag­poles dan­gle flags man­u­fac­tured out of res­cue blan­kets, sym­bols of var­i­ous nation­al­ist ide­olo­gies cur­rent­ly regain­ing strength. But not a spe­cif­ic nation is meant here, whose imagery would be rec­og­niz­able on the flags. The flags rather seem like place hold­ers, in which the imme­di­ate con­text is mir­rored. The res­cue blan­kets evoke a wide spec­trum of asso­ci­a­tions rang­ing from the sil­very and gold­en insignia of rep­re­sen­ta­tions of pow­er to acci­dents and catastrophes.
