At first sight, this bulky sculpture instantly seems imposing in the way that the colossal scale of monumental art can often belittle the significance of the human figure and its capacity when confronted with this. In prolonged stay, we discover the agility and intense labor with which this striking piece is made. Layers of pressing newspapers become a bonding agent for the “news” that today’s media compels us to remember. Held together in what seems like a durable wall, the frontiers of the media’s strategies are apparent in this corporation’s despotic dissemination. The disturbing repetition of the tearing pages of newspaper, captured in the sound part of this installation, fortifies the power of the media to underrate people. Maria Petrides, Independent Writer
