Says Olsson and Noemi, "The sides of the frame are held together by L-shaped corner profiles in copper, liberating the frame from any screws and fixed formats."

"The copper profiles are slid on to the corners as épaulettes and enhance the expression of the frame in a subtile, but characteristic way."

"The corners of a frame is what defines the silouette and could be looked upon as the shoulders of a picture."

Epaulette was shown at the 2012 Norwegian Tingenes Tilstand exhibition. More at Caroline Olsson and Ida Noemi.
