Hero project #1
Installation with 9 Christopher Columbus children's books at the oldest Christopher Columbus monument
I think it is not necessary to put people
on a pedestal in democratic countries.
Because someone regarded as a hero
is an invader of other countries.
This work is not meant as vandalism but
as an invitation.
The ritual of waiting in line can make us
ask what we are waiting for.
Is the hero real?
Do we want the hero to be real?
Do we need this fantasy?
