Artist Description

These works take a Historiographical perspective, distancing themselves from the intentions of the symbols they portray. They are principally concerned with the manner in which history is recorded. Which of the meta-narratives that spawned these statues are still in our blind-spot today? How is the rhetoric of history so cogently reproduced when in the moment it feels like chaos? Can values such as Bravery and Loyalty exist aside from moral reprehensibility?


Keywords: history, colonialism, fallen monuments,
