Monumemento

Treat everything sincerely and with irony. The place from which we (I? you? they?) speak is always occupied by someone else. Transgress from visual to verbal and then back. Get outside and you will find yourself in a total installation.

Two artists and a curator from Australia, France, and Russia work across the internet in an attempt to construct a collective memory. A personal encyclopaedia of monuments and symbolism for the everyday. But how flexible is memory when collectivised? Is it possible to grasp the meaning completely without mastering all the codes at once? If language is a tool, they prefer to keep it tangled.
