Status of Lost Imagery
2016, digital print on linen, metal structures
0,7 x 5 x 18 m
Palazzo Altemps, Museo Nationale Romano
A press photo is printed on linen and spread out in one of the well-restored rooms of the National Roman Museum,
Palazzo Altemps. The pixelated image is similar to a carpet pattern. However, it represents the state of
destruction in the museum of Palmyra after its liberation from the IS in March 2016. Metal structures frame
the vandalized sculptures lying on the floor in the image.
