"Legio Italiane" - 1993
3. of August 1993: The knights under leader Amadi reached the Dolomites mountains. The march trough the hill is very arduous. The passes are very narrow and are winding at steep rocks. One of the horses was fear, it slides, falls down with its horseman into the deep. Them followed the two behind them galloping horseman's. Amadi has only 17 knights in his Army left. After erecting a crucifix he remind his Army to be more careful and if it becomes to difficult the knight should guide their horses by hand.
Legio Italiane was created 1993. It was a work in progress. I made 25 knights (material: fabric, tarred; hight 50 cm).
The first installation-places are around Roma, later on my way to Germany. The last installation take place at the Brenner mountains.
I was taking pictures and videos about this installations.
At the installation-places i left one or more knight`s. So at the end of this project I have no knight left over.
