(RE)COVERED
162 x 126 x 0,3 cm
medals, felt
2008-present


The work (RE)COVERED consists of a number of rows of medals covered in black felt. In this work, only the silhouettes of the medals remain visible. Specific details, such as embossing and colour, are invisible. This gives the medals an iconic character. The awarding of a medal can be seen as the assignment of concentrated attention to a specific moment. Each of the medals in the work (RE)COVERED were once given to a person to commemorate a moment in his or her life. By concealing the medals the work becomes memorabilia.
