Burned flag (framed), 103 cm x 157 cm

White flag burning. Black flag turning. Flags can function as symbols of nations and as representations of values and ideals. For example, a white flag represents peace and a black flag signifies anarchy. Due to its symbolic value – as a representation of a nation and specific ideals – burning a flag is considered a violation and a criminal act in many countries. This video documents the artist burning a white flag. The result of this action is a burnt piece of cloth and its black residue.
