Installation views: 22nd Bienal de Arte Paiz, Antigua, Guatemala

 

This work is based on a monument located in Guatemala City (view image on next page), built to commemorate the 1944 Revolution, an important event in Guatemalan history which marks the overthrowing of dictator Jorge Ubico and the beginning of the "Democratic spring", led by presidents Juan José Arévalo y Jacobo Árbenz Guzmán.

This work was presented along with a set of plywood shelves, one empty and one with Folding Monument (Monumento a la revolución de octubre de 1944) (see the last two images), folded.
