THE GUARD TOWER

2002

golden chocolate paper    

the abandoned penal colony from the communist period on Goli otok

during summer it becomes an artist colony and tourist destination

there is a guard tower behind the quarry in which prisoners worked

the guard tower is warped in chocolate paper

ironic commentary of the “romantic” feeling of the island experienced by the artists and tourists; the true purpose of the place is showed when the decorative paper is unwrapped
