Exhibition views from my first presentation of the project  "An Alternative History of Symbols and their Meaning" at Galerie Melike Bilir, Hamburg. The solo exhibition consisted of eleven (11) enamel shields forged in Rohrbach, Bavaria, and a poster edition.
An Alternative History of Symbols and their Meaning involves using the colours and symbols embedded in the coats of arms of federal states, cities, towns, and villages in Germany to depict a fictional state struggling with its identity, with change, and the failure of its institutions. It touches on issues of appropriation, production of meaning, reverse ethnology, and the role of fiction in shaping contemporary realities.
