Flag Washing Machine (Carousel), 2013, Installation

ZIP Group

ZIP kurantLocation: Kurant Gallery, Søndre Tollbodgate 17, 9008 Tromsø

Opening on the 14th of September, [time]

The installation has a form of rope way on roller skates with the flags of different countries. The flags are spinning in a circle, getting into a basin of water at the bottom and then squeezing by special rollers. Flags are painted with gouache on cloth, so gradually paint comes off and staining other flags, the walls and floor. National signs are fading away, as the “pre-mondial” stage of our planet does not need symbols of nation states. (ZIP Group)
