Figures Taken out of Context is a series of 10 collages, all of which feature common people or soldiers who have experienced different kinds of warfare. These characters have been cut out and extracted from their original settings, pasted onto black cardboard paper. I have painted pedestals for each of these extracted characters on paper so that they appear like statues. The viewer can barely make out the era and status of these characters based on their clothing and appearances. Due to the loss of context in these images, there is no possibility to determine more precisely such coordinates as the time of existence, actions taken, roles and missions for these characters.
