EN / CZ FUKARIA MONUMENTS
Prague, 2008/2009
An idea dating back to 2007 which was born during my several years of „painting“ in subway stations and subways. The easiest way to get in there is to go in through huge ventillation shafts, where the power of the flowing air propelled by large fans is very noticable. I used this powerful airflow to fill my object made out of parachute fabric, which is lightweight and sturdy at the same time. Each monument is specifically designed for a certain place to fit its size and arrangement of ventillation shafts. In the beginning I had to find the best material out of which to make the monuments and find the ventillation shaft with the most powerful draught. The next step was to see how the blown up object would react to its surroundings (for example wind). The preparations for the setup of the first object, the 15 meters high Grab, took me two month.
The documentatino of the project was on display on the NAMES 2008 exhibition.
