Permanent Collection at the Museo d'Arte Contemporanea di Florina, Greece

A photo of an installation I did last November on the banks of the Seine river in Paris, France called "An Ankh For Paris" was selected from several works in the ArtClash 2016 exhibition in Florence's Palazzo Vecchio to become part of the permanent collection at the Museo d'Arte Contemporanea di Florina in Greece. The installation, made out of 200 baguettes measuring 16m x 12m was created to show solidarity and support for Paris after the terrorist attacks on November 13, 2015. The Ankh, an Egyptian hieroglyphic symbol meaning "everlasting life" is also known to be the shape of a bull's vertebra, implying strength and power.
