While engraving on granite fragments the phrase “Exotic Athens” and sketches of my personal view of the exotic, I have in mind the way they engrave monuments and gravestones. The granite pieces are urban found objects from a pedestrian area’s floor.
This diptych was the first of the engraved granite series. The slogan "Crapumenta 14" was all around in the streets of Athens during the Documenta 14 (2017). Considering the reaction of Athenian people funny, interesting and serious at the same time I have used fragments of the word to write "Crapy Monuments", while commenting the way titles of works and names, were engraved on marble in Documenta 14 in Athens, as in public monuments. The granite pieces were found in public pedestrian floor.
