maroš krivý

"one of the strategies, how ego strengthens its value, is by exposing itself to value radiating from a monument. displaying itself for a photographic camera, a transient but exclusive relationship is constructed between an ego and a sacred object. 'i am in front of a monument' becomes 'i am a monument'. in the presented work, monuments represented on postcards were covered by mirror mosaiques. in this way, ego no longer needs photographic camera to construct a relationship with a monument. instead, ego can merge into the setting and thus literally become a monument by simply looking at itself." see more here.

[all maroš krivý. from the series 'i am a monument' (various sizes, postcards, mirrors, decorative photo-frames). 2010.]
