Why are medals given only to talented sportsmen or powerful men in society? What about ordinary people who lead simple lives but also show acts of bravery, courage and compassion towards themselves and others – do they not deserve medals?
Inger Margrethe Larsen’s questions bring a smile on our lips and also make us think.
“Medals for Everyday Heroes” features a series of ’ordinary’ protagonists from different countries wearing one of Inger's designed medals along with their personal statements. Laced with wit, insight, curiosity and cheerfulness, Inger’s show brings to light some aspects of their unique and often exceptional lives.
Solo exhibition about Medals for everyday heroes took place in India in 2018 and in the USA in 2020.
More than 100 everyday heroes has been collected from around the world to the project.
