The installation is called “Unknown heroes – Renown heroes”. Destroyed pistols, that have been violently distorted, pose as human war victims. The heroes that have never returned home. Some, the unknown, have stayed unburied under the strong redemptive sunlight. Others, the renown, are resting with honorary burials in the ground. Two Olympic pedestals of winners complete the installation, giving an ironic dimension to the success and the joy of winning.

Exhibition setup 

The room on the left hosts the "Unknown heroes".
Lights are diffused and intense, resembling a bright sunny day in the countryside.

The room on the right hosts the "Renown heroes".
Lights are directed towards each piece. The mood is dark, esoteric and eerie.

In both rooms, the two pedestals "guard" the exit doors.
