Public Tales, 2 color silkscreen poster on archival paper, ed. of 10, 2013

The work Public Tales ( Moustaches) is part of the research about representation of state power and history within public space and the way these representations integrate and shape our daily experiences.
The work takes as an example the Viennese equestrian statues that dominate many squares and junctures of the city. The bronze horsetails are the main elements of the work; photographed from the left and the right, they are photo-montaged into ‘moustaches’. The silkscreen print showcases these examples of ‘public tails’, the ‘public moustaching’ as a critical archive of the male dominant and patriarchal mode of cultural value production.
