On 21st of July 2015 from the center of Vilnius a monument of Socialist period has been removed with no apparent reason. The object was standing on a bridge as city landmark since 1952. For several days the artist and a few people film team were following preparations and the actual taking down. The action of calibrating the cameras becomes a ritual for the object about to leave. The filming process and participation in it is both mediating and legitimizing the procedure, even if against artists’ will. | Sound and text narratives are associated with the disappearing monument and the removal of bronze bodies is edited into stereoscopic video performance. |
