Alexandra Pirici designed a project trying to create a dynamic relation between the individual, the architectural constructions now turned into national symbols of totalitarianism and, more generally, the “public monument” – which, they believe, needs no public consent in order to be solidified. The artists see it as necessary practice, as an attempt to updating or intervening, confronting and embodying them, as well as a reference point relative to something that embodies yourself and stands for “you”. Finally, the project also tries to establish a small “practice of presence” by repeating its sequences in the public space daily, for a whole month.
