Twenty-Eight concept drawing

TWENTY-EIGHT is the name of a site-specific installation representing the EU group of member states. Member states are represented by translations of their national anthems, which are a central theme of the entire installation. The Motto of the EU, “Unity in Diversity”, however, highlights the need of individual states to define (seek) and build their own identity. The content of national anthems often conflict with the EU’s efforts to unify and highlight the need of states to fight and protect themselves as unique and undisrupted space. The installation as a whole evokes the feeling of monument or memorial space.
