Hostomel sculpture


metal, stone

The fragment of metal from the roof of the five-stored residential building in Hostomel (Gostomel), destroyed by artillery missiles in March 2022, was transformed into a flag-shaped sculpture. The metal sheet is crumpled and has traces of shrapnel. Another element of the work is a stone found in the countryside near Cologne. The encounter of material evidences from the places of catastrophe and of 'European normality' creates the tension, showing the shrinking distance between war and peace, and fragility of the latter.

Produced with the support of Sandro Parrotta gallery, Cologne-Bonn
