A flag has a representative quality by signalling value. Utilising the public function of the flag and its symbolic recognition but also to highlight the capitalist and commercial side to revolutions worldwide.
Fire Flag is a ‘one size fits all’, ‘revolution for sale’ practical yet undermining act of flag desecration, protest, activism and revolution. Now no flag needs to be burned and yet any flag can exist underneath the aesthetic surface of these flames. The act of burning a flag is reduced to an ‘authentic replica’ state.
