Golden Edition, 2003 - 2010
Acrylic and Metal on Photograph, #1: 55 x 30 cm / #2: 120 x 60 cm

For the past years, the chador as well as the burka or the head shawl as such became the symbol of an ongoing public dispute between the defenders and offenders of this particular “dress code” within the European societies, as well as within the societies of the Middle East that sometimes regard it as a possibility to express aspects of an Anti Western identity based on some blown up words from the Qur’an. The piece of fabric was over and over filled with meanings and opinions. In my perception as a result, its meaning as such moved towards zero. This is the reason for my Golden Edition. Its gold does not refer to the precious metal but to the glitter of total emptiness, to the pure surface.
