Information

Using metal poles, ropes and awnings of different colors and sizes, an “invasive occupation” was performed at the Juan Bravo monument (a piece from the sculptor Aniceto Marinas) located in the Medina del Campo Plaza, in Segovia, Spain. This “intervention” also “occupied” the Medina del Campo Plaza, by covering an area of approximately 400m2.

 

“Counter-monuments: occupation” was
developed in conjunction with the Quintanar Palace in Segovia (directed by Giovanni Ferraro) for the exposition “Reconsidering the Monument”, curated by Miguel Cereceda.

 

The production started on April 17th 2019, fabricating poles and structural counterweights that would support the ropes and awnings; on April 24th began the installation work of the awinings and ropes, finalizing on April 30th 2019.
