Frozen World Cup 2022, 2021
Installation with video projection, ice-replica of the FIFA World Cup trophy, fridge, pedestal

During my residency in Lebanon in 2019, I noticed the light projection promoting the FIFA World Cup 2022 on the ‘Raouche Rocks’ (one of the main touristic attraction of the capital city). The climatized stadiums built in Qatar for the mega-sport event inspired me to replicate the FIFA World Cup trophy with ice and to showcase it inside a refrigerated vitrine. Next to this, a video projection showed an animation of the twisted logo of FIFA World Cup, with rhododendron and snowflakes falling, alongside Bangladeshi and Nepali passeports.
