THE PEDESTAL THAT HAS LOST ITS MONUMENT, 2010
painted wood, brass 105x105x145 cm
A pedestal is the carrier of the idea of giving immunity to images, thoughts, historical figures, which mostly represents the moral values of the current location. Its function is to fortify the represented image by carrying the image to a higher point. The work shows a classical type of a pedestal without any representational image on it. In this way, the viewer is confronted with the pedestal and its function alone.
