embroidery; 2 flags; installation; 2007/8
This work refers to the French heroine, Joan d'Arc, the icon of contemporary feminism. I used words and phrases found in literature describing her identity. Joan used to be called saint, heroine, virgin, she-soldier, visionary, but a witch and heretic as well. The embroidered inscription I am a virgin is on the whit flag, while I am a witch is on the black flag.
