The work is based around the idea of the political protest banner, the ones that are hung on buildings and scaffoldings. Slogans and easily recognizable symbols are removed and replaced with motifs, which are not usually perceived as political. Thorns, thistles and roots. The work is an attempt to create new symbols and images under which there are new possibilities to unite.
