Alexander (*signed*)

@ Siarek, Michał



Presentation by the artist: 

"Alexanderis a story based on the relationship between politics, history and culture, centred around the construction of a national myth in the (Former Yugoslav) Republic of Macedonia – a state with no name, fixated on a dispute about origins so distant that they may have never existed at all."

The artist made multiple long stays in Skopje for this project, about the politic will to connect the state of Macedonia to the mythical figure of Alexander the Great. On a side note, a referendum is to be organized on September 30th, 2018 to confirm the choice of North Macedonia as the new name for the FYR of Macedonia.
