Absent Monuments, Zarya Center for Contemporary Art, Vladivostok Russia
November 5, 2016 – January 22, 2017
The video of our augmented reality Cornerstone Monument is on display in this fascinating exhibition in Vladivostok Russia.
Here is a description of some of the pieces in this show:
The monument to Russian Navy Admiral Vasily Zavoyko, which was demolished and replaced by a statue of Bolshevik leader Sergey canadian casino news Lazo. Zurab Tsereteli’s plans to erect the world’s largest statue of Jesus Christ. A proposed memorial to whalers. The dismantled monument to Admiral Gennady Nevelskoy. Augmented reality Ararat memorial. The U.F.O. memorial in Estonia. What all of these episodes share is a common interest in addressing a memory that cannot be accessed through any other means? Is it possible for a monument – generally a massive object, containing historical – to function in an ephemeral environment, such as text, visual images, sound, or even smartphone apps? In such forms, could it still continue to serve as a repository for memory?
