Edin Numankadić “Frame for the mirror”

Bookstore “Buybook” (Sarajevo)
August 22 – September 20, 1998


This work created in 1998 in combined technique consists of an old baroque mirror-frame damaged by shrapnel during the war, and a painting called “Sarajevo roofs” from 1968. Instead of the destroyed mirror there is the painting (oil on canvas – also damaged by shrapnel), which is one of the first student paintings by the author. The whole painting with the frame is taped together with packing tape, as a remainder for the future.
