Heads of Power

Busts of powerful politicians, made with the newspaper of their country of origin.

It is important to me that the bust of the politician portrayed be made of newspaper of the country that he comes from. I believe it is his country that can grant him this „power“ or else remove him from office.

When I heard about the possibility of applying for my artistic project at Villa Medici, the seat of the French Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, I visited the place and it occurred to me that the cache for Emperor Napoleon was empty. So, I made a bust of the emperor to present my project at the time to the institution. (This project was still not possible to realize)
