Advanced Science of Morphology is a project that questions the possibility of unity in Europe by reflecting on the changes that have happened to the countries that once made up Yugoslavia.

The 26 combinations of the national flags of the states that once made up Yugoslavia is a timely art work that replaces the flags of the EU member states in Marble Arch Park in London. The morphing of national identities aims to question the goal of unity in Europe and invites us to reflect on the roles we play in making and breaking dreams of European togetherness.

Alongside the public art presentations of the work and the gallery exhibitions, the flags were carried through a number of cities as a form of live art event. This time in London, a group of 26 people walked for 5 hours from Marble Arch, Central London to Space Gallery in Hackney. Passing through various parts of the city areas was synonymous with ‘bridging the borders’ (one aspect the morphed flags project supports). The walking performances also gave passers-by the opportunity to talk with the flag bearers and myself – as the artist and one of the flag-bearers.

‘…Advanced Science of Morphology’ is a project that questions the possibility
of unity in Europe by reflecting on the changes that have happened to the countries
that once made up Yugoslavia.

Alongside the public art presentations of the work and the gallery exhibitions, the flags were carried through a number of cities as a form of live art event. This time in Zagreb, we took the flags to area of Mamutica in the perifery as well as the City center. Passing through various parts of the city was synonymous with ‘bridging the borders’ (one aspect the morphed flags project supports). The walking performances also gave passers-by the opportunity to talk with the flag bearers and myself. The reception of the project and debate with passers, varied from friendly to aggressive.
