Obeliscul lui Cristi Pogacean mi s-a parut a fi cea mai 'pe brief' lucrare din pavilionul Romaniei, a carui tema era Low Budget Monuments.

Cristi POGACEAN, Obelisk, 2007

The work inverts the tradition of obelisks, rendering them useful for birds and integrating the relation between pigeons and monuments that marks the history of both species. It proposes an ironic reflection on the state of traditional monumentality – failed and/ or misinterpreted in its aspiration to project an absolute historical truth. A monument for the vulnerability of monuments and the distorted histories they rely on. (Mihnea Mircan)
