European and Hymns Integration

Pen and watercolor on paper, 142 x 181 cm, 2010

The integration stereotype is a common situation in the countries of Eastern Europe, being used massively by the politicians in their electoral campaigns, making globalization part of a collective dream in the hands of the leaders. The technique is: watercolor and ink. The map of Europe in watercolor is not very clear, always changing like the union itself. The anthems are in ink. Watercolor is a material which does not have a limiting definition and the shapes that are created lose clarity, as Europe is sensitive to the cultural crisis that characterizes the culture of a geopolitical area. The anthems are all in their original languages and they are lost into one-another, simulating a grammatical war on the global culture being proposed to the local one.
