‘Monumentality’ is an installation composed of small sculptures. Each sculpture depicts a monument in miniature as an architectural model. While the plan of each sculpture is the same, the three-dimensionality varies.
A monument is often defined as a notable ‘building, structure, or site that is of historical importance or interest’. As physical markers of historical or political information, the status of monuments is subjective. The status of actual monuments is often caught in politics itself, ensnared between tourism and conservation and sometimes, physical disappearance.
The sheer number and repetition of sculptural monuments creates a field condition, where the singular monument is blurred into a patterned corridor. How do we define a monument? What meanings do monuments amass, what meanings are lost? How does a monument shift to obsolescence and what happens when it does?
