Melanie Schiff Covers VEIL FLAG by S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA.

September 28, 2020

This project is a meditation on the American flag; how a patriotic icon can be transformed beyond a public symbol. What happens when the iconographic is destabilized, when that which is upright is displaced onto the body and rendered abstract? Given the current political climate in the United States, I wanted to explore the concept of the flag as a signifier in flux and how our relationship to it may change when it is activated as a veil. The mantra-like narration emphasizes the state of mourning I see our country in and the importance of voting out the leaderless leadership of the Trump administration.
