Headquarters, 2011

 

Based on a picture of a military HQ in Iraq during the second Gulf War, Headquarters shows a desk full of computers, phones and bottled water, people working, making calls or typing. Maps on the wall are landscapes destructed to the point of abstraction and a satellite view from Baghdad after the bombing. An aggressive, depthless red on the background contrasts with the bright green clothing of the clerks, like a singular uniform.
