Every Day a Revolution, 2012
Wine bottles, red carnations, time, daily performance
Diameter variable with number of bottles
Standard wine bottles, varying in number according to the length of the exhibition, are set on the floor in a circle. Each day a red carnation is placed in the bottles. The work refers to the unrelenting struggle for the right to freedom waged by people around the world. The red carnation has become a rallying symbol in contempo rary insurgencies. The bottle recalls the Molotov cocktail, a homemade incendiary weapon most often used against authorities in incidents of urban unrest.
