Monument of Words

First Commissions inspired by The Great Petition: empower the powerless.

Artist Statement

Monument of Words is an installation piece that explores the concept of walls and the prescribed divisions that are meant to neatly characterise race, nationalism, language, religion and personal experience. By listening to arguments from in and around the border, we come to understand the illusion of power; as it brings into question who and what it is we are trying to protect and the role that words play in defining what the wall is meant to represent.
