Publikation zur Ausstellung in der Schirn Frankfurt. / It is in a Sicilian daily newspaper, where Aleksandra Mir's project Triumph had its start-in the form of a want ad run by the artist herself. She was interested in the trophy, an object whose history reaches back to our distant cultural past and which today, awarded chiefly at sporting events, is among the everyday items of our society. More than 2500 trophies were collected. Although the trophies are contemporary mass-produced articles, each one is individualized by means of an engraving and tells a personal story. Triumph, Alexandra Mir's first solo exhibition in Germany, presents this collection, and has thus become an archive of popular culture and part of contemporary history.
