SAF MOURNING PINS
2018

Funeral mourning pins, traditionally symbolic of familial relations through its coloured fabric, have been reinterpreted as pixelated green for our fallen soldiers. Packaged seemingly like a SAF eMart product, it brings into question the recurrence of NSF deaths during peacetime operations, as the norm or even a “necessary sacrifice”. By pinning it onto the sleeves of white mourning garment is a silent act for greater accountability and transparency in the SAF.






Safety pin on fabric, packaged in resealable plastic bags
Edition of five, pack of three, each 4 x 4.5 (cm)
