Sculptural piece with a metal structure in the shape of a partisan star, made of cloth covered with dinars, Serbian coins of legal tender. I am making this work based on the gendar dresses, originally from eastern Bosnia, bridal gowns covered with coins, the dowry that the same wife wore on the day of the ceremony. Some of these early 20th century dresses are preserved in the Ethnographic Museum in Belgrade. The coins collected are from local art agents, who told me that they had kilos of coins accumulated at home, since due to their low value it did not make sense to change them in the bank.
The Serbian currency has been the fourth to suffer the highest inflation in the world, its worst period was between 1993 and 1994, whem it was estimated that the inflation rate reached 65% daily and at which time Slobodan Milosevic financed his war campaigns through the indiscriminate printing of money.
