"Legio Italiane" - 1993
Amadi is one of the mostly frightening knights of Europe. And he knows how to hypnotize his enemy. So it comes that the most of the enemy's by seeing him, are falling in trance and jumping them self in the deep. The rest of the other army was ended under the sharp of Amadis sword. After fighting free his way he had only a rest of 15 knights. The Tirol people renamed the pass in Tausen-Bloody-hills. They do that in memory to the soldier killed in action. But at the same day, only some miles away, on a bridge crossing over flood swept hill-stream, one of Amadis knight was falling down in the deep. Was that because he has been uncareful ore faintness? We don't know that.
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.
