Voodoo - Untitled anonymous monument
2011, mixed media installation, 369x266 cm
Voodoo was created parallel to unfolding events of the Arab Spring. It is a tribute to all those who destroyed images or statues of an oppressor and who had to hide their identities or faced prosecution for doing so.
Targeting the imagery of a tyrant became nearly as dangerous as attacking the dictator himself, creating a complex interplay of destruction of existing object, new dynamics in production and dissemination of images and icons.
