STATE OF IDENTITY

“‘State of Identity’ is an attempt to create the flag of Greece using Greek earth and sea (white marble and sea reflected on the mirrors).”

ABOUT

‘State of identity’ is one solid piece of white marble from Thasos depicting the Greek flag. The idea is simple but the work’s effect is complex. The artist has carved out of the marble the parts which should be depicted in the colour blue and replaced them with mirrors. Placing the flag with a view of the sea, the water is reflected on the mirrors, lending her beautiful hues and creating a new version of the Greek flag; true but also imagined, perennial but also fleeting. A flag, therefore, created from the earth and the sea of Greece. The visual possibilities are endless, and so are the narratives.
