Random Sunday musing

Artwork by the Danish artist Lisa Harlev. Lisa's work focuses on ethnic and social issues within modern day society. This piece is food for thought for the nationalistic and the cynical alike. Perhaps the words of the mixed race- writer Jayne Ifekwinigwe serve as an appropriate condensation of the aforementioned artwork. "Africa,Sud America, Britain, North America. Many may claim me but no one can really own me" On a day when provisional polls in France indicate that Marie Le Penn, the leader of the far right movement, The French National Front is as things stand in a favourable position to be a genuine contender for presidency in 2012, the need for individuals to have an identity that is truly theirs and not that of the overarching political hegemony of the state is very imminent.
