Semaphore Two

2014, Berlin
Neue Nationalgalerie
Acrylic on fabric
700 x 440 cm

Two gently moving, colourful canvas flags are hoisted up the flag poles of the Neue National Galerie. In contrast to the harsh lines and sombre colours of the building, the flags act as soft, abstract opposition to the Mies van der Rohe design. The kinetic piece is ephermeral, shortly disappearing, leaving behind the the stark and uncompromising building.
