INSTANT MONUMENT

2008

print 20 x 30 cm, each, video, 7' 48''    

I have made a photo documentation of the different, existing monuments

every monument was dedicated to some historical figure (there are no allegorical representation such as Freedom, Justice, an unknown hero ... or fictional characters)

based on photographs I have made a three-dimensional drawings

the model of each pedestal is called by the name of the person that is actually on the monument (e.g. MODEL_001_CHRISTOPHER, MODEL_002_GIUSEPPE ...)

fifteen different models of pedestals

exhibition presents prints of each model and video animation

animation is created in a way that each of the models is displayed as a drawing and its versions in materials such as granite, marble...

work is treated as a kind of advertising, catalogue

pedestal models offer the choice, everyone can choose the desired one made in material that prefers
