Backdrop for absolute sovereignty

Kulisse for absolutt suverenitet / Backdrop for absolute sovereignty is an abstracted reproduction of the drapery behind G.L. Bernini`s baroque portrait of Constantin the Great in the Scala Regia, St. Peters Basilica, Rome. For this project the particular historical reference was taken through time and juxtaposed to a photograph titled ...Hell, a photography of a typical 80`s denim-jacket with writings on its back, examining the symbolic meaning and expressions of textiles and the hidden language defined by popular culture and time.
