Occupying an entire room and spilling out
into the next, 2008 is a monumental mass
of shredded Cypriot pounds, the totality of
Cyprus entered the Eurozone in 2008. The
work was created at a fragile transitional
moment, reflecting on the shifting symbolic
values in the context of national identity.
2008 remains strikingly relevant in the
context of Europe’s continuing
socioeconomic crisis of the last few years,
and particularly the sweeping implosion of
the Cypriot banking system in 2013, with
its enduring aftermath.
