Installation, 2010

In this sculptural installation I play with the seductivity of barbed wire, the material on which the nation-state has been built on. Several feet of barbed wire, suspended from the floor, painted in silver, pearl with red reflections, shining and attractive, push the viewer to almost forget its dangerous  and violent symbolism. The 'ecriture' and inscription of the nation-state is an ambiguous and illusive one. Shadows and lights cast on the walls and floors by the barbed wire underline the spectrality of nationhood, its aura, its Sublime.
