Object Detail

Artwork from Roger Morris' 'Enduring Freedom' series that refers to the faceless civilian victims of war. The artwork is made up of four panels of found images glued to a black cardboard support. Morris has painted over the images in black etching ink to create faceless head and shoulder 'portraits'. The two panels on the left of the image feature the words "HERE" painted in red paint. The next panel has a collage element and a white aeroplane obscuring the head of the figure beneath. The word "HIT" is printed in white paint on the panel. The panel on the right features scrawled words/patterns in white ink. Beneath the four panels is a string of white ink numbers and letters that refer to the code printed into a piece of metal retrieved from an American missile dropped on a residential area of Baghdad, Iraq, in March 2003. The missile killed dozens of civilians.
