Michael Leon’s much awaited Vexhall exhibition at Pool Gallery in Berlin. This film is a part of the video installation to be on show. We can’t wait to see more.

“Since I was a child I’ve been fascinated by flags. The United Nations, Olympics, World’s Fair and other idealized visions of world community have always inspired my artwork and design. This show combines pieces that draw literally from flag design mixed with my own design sensibility and personal history. By going back and forth between reverence and irreverence for vexilollogy, I have created flags for real and imagined countries, events, friends, emotions, ex-girlfriends, and everything inbetween. Some using the strict guidelines of flag design next to some that may have been scribbled on a napkin or inspired by a dream. In doing so this Vexhall (Hall of Flags) is my own personal and nostalgic United Nations.”
