About the Minimum Monument

「最小的紀念碑」是一個在公共空間進行的都市藝術行為,是對當代城市中紀念碑的批判性解讀。作品包含了數千座高 20 公分、有男有女的冰雕人像,在路人的協助下被帶到市中心各處放著、隨時間融化。




Minimum Monument is an urban art action in public spaces. The project is a critical reading of the monument in the contemporary cities. It consists of thousands of ice sculptures that are taken to central places in cities and with help from the passers-by, are left to melt. The sculptures are tiny men and women, 20 cm tall. 

In a few-minute action, the official canons of the monument are inverted: in the place of the hero, the anonym; in the place of the solidity of the stone, the ephemeral process of the ice; in the place of the monument scale, the minimum scale of the perishable bodies. 

The project started with solitary figures, later a multitude of small sculptures of ice were placed in public spaces of several cities. The memory is inscribed in the photographic image and shared by everyone. It is not reserved to great heroes nor to great monuments. It loses its static condition to gain fluidity in the urban displacement and in the change of state of the water. It concentrates on small sculptures of small men, the common men. 

Although originally intended as a critic of the role of monuments in cities, environmentalists around the world are adopting her work as climate change art. The intervention creates a powerful individual and collective memory for all who experience it, leading the public to a brief but intense connection with the vital time of each one. In addition, it strongly brings up the environmental issue, a problem of gigantic proportions that affects everyone today.
