The Imperialized Confederate & Waltz
Slideshow and video installation during the CIVIC VIRTUE II exhibition at Villa Dessauer, Stadthausgalerie Bamberg, 2011.
Besides decapitations, another recurring motive was the isolated head, like the head of a monk. A head disconnected from, and confronted with the world as a collection of archaeological fragments, as unconnected body-parts. The head has then the task of constructing a history, or an understanding of the current situation from these fragments: the character of the monk as a producer of Time. Someone copying books and ideas into the future, establishing a rhythm in time through the act of copying itself. From: CIVIC VIRTUE's Grand Tour Pamflet.
