DESCRIPTION

In our attachment space, we will show a part of the installation Requiem of  Heroism by Anne Wenzel. Requiem of Heroism was first seen at the museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam in 2010 and consists of a monumental installation of floral wreaths: a universal symbol for the commemoration of the fallen of war. A large floral wreath, with smaller wreathes strewn around it formed the core of the installation in the large hall of the museum. In the cabinets of the museum Wenzel placed smaller floral wreaths on plinths or hanging on the walls of the alcoves. These works express an immense, ponderous gravity, but surprise at the same time by the fragile organic beauty of the withered flowers.
