The white military marble headstone will in this project symbolise lost civilian lives and lives to be lost in the terrible act of terrorism.
When focusing on the American military headstone as an artistic measure my intention is to create a consistent link between terrorism and the American political and military behaviour since the Second World War.
From the Italian supplier and manufacturer of crosses to the American military cemetery I received an original headstone to my project. The headstone was shipped and delivered in a wooden box. Opening the wooden box and looking down at the headstone gave me a feeling of being at a burial of this strong traditional symbol. I have now made 28 copies of this headstone in a lighter material for my performances and installations.
