Object Detail


Artwork from Roger Morris' 'Enduring Freedom' series that evokes the anonymous casualties of war. An image of a faceless head - rendered in white, black and grey - is adhered to a piece of plastic that has been cut into the shape of a television/table. The numbers "00 1 3197 5 67" are stamped in white into the bottom of the image. The numbers are random. The artwork was inspired by the casualties of war remembered by various war memorials around the world. Morris sees the face not only as dead, but also hopeful and humorous.
