PRAYER FLAGS FOR PEACE
The flags are hung in a circular arrangement, to reference a central meeting point, a place to come together, a place of shelter and refuge. They echo the shape of the Sarajevo Roses, mosque ceilings and other Bosnian archetypes. There are a total of 24 strings, one for every hour of the day. The number of 360 flags is the average number of mortar shells that rained down on Sarajevo each day during the siege. Prayer Flags for Peace expresses the importance of remembered and recorded history while offering hope and positive images for a future of peace.
Exhibited at Redline Denver in November 2016 and at the History Museum, Sarajevo in February 2017.
