Installation views by Yehia Eweis
A Civilian Remake is a double take to highlight how armed conflicts are reported based on master narratives and how taking the viewpoint of a sole person embodies conflict. The exhibition consisted of an installation based on a photo from the Finnish Defence Forces’ archive depicting the aftermath of an air raid during WW II and a video work implemented as the fictitious interview Too Good To Be True.
