"champ de casques"
in 2006 two artists were chosen to commemorate the battle of Verdun - one from Germany, the other from France.
My project relies on the fact that WW I caused such numerous head injuries leading first Germans, then French and allies to develop their head protections almost as we know them today.
My commemoration consists of 90 copies of French and German helmets in porcelaine lying on the ground, lined up like a regiment. They rest at the garden of the former episcopal palace in Verdun, now the World Center for Piece (http://www.cmpaix.eu/cmp-image.php)
Each helmet has a composite image of the sky inglazed, my metaphor for freedom and territories that cannot be divided.
This installation was made possible by the generous help of Kahla Porzellan, Germany
