commission by Sanne Vaassen

STATE - STATUS - STATIC

transforming the Dutch flag into a Russian flag

Year: 2017

Material: rewoven unravelled Dutch flag

Sanne Vaassen, a Dutch artist, got in touch with me for her flag project. In her project she questions what a country now a days is. Sanne gave me (and other Dutch weavers) yarns: she had taken the actual Dutch flag and deconstructed it yarn by yarn. The weaver is supposed to use these yarns and re-make a flag with his/her imprint and the use of his/her craftsmanship. In this way, the artist turns a symbol of a nation into a platform for an individual.
