"Cuneiform" (2019)

Long time ago, cuneiform signs were developed in the Middle East region as a powerful tool to organize trade networks. The region became the cradle of our civilisation. Thousands of years later religious, nationalistic and ethnical narratives were weaved to a new and destructive reality. In this installation I highlight the tragically changed destiny of that region.

Quote from the client who bought a work from this series: "they made me emotional... they spoke to me about marks in our lives and on the ground... signals... almost warnings."
