“Small Coins Campaign” is a series of arrowheads made out of coins.

1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 cents of euro coins melted and moulded, thus appropriating thousand-year old techniques of wheapon fabrication with copper, steel and aluminium alloy.
Between contemporary archaeology and anachronic gesture, this small coin devaluation campaign changes our currency into in simple utilitarian tool.
This transformation gives our small coins their supremacy back. The citizen return to the Bronze Age, opposing natural state to social state in that of fierce contemporary “economic war”.
