Monuments by George Demir

In his work Monuments George Demir examines people’s life-stories and their social
positions and poses the question of social representation.
Monuments touches on mutual issues and circumstances as a fragment of self-
representation, on a universal level, through biographical interactive conversations
with different people that have different lifestyles, different sexualities, different
gender-identities and of course different stories.
George Demir utilises the traditional art form of Channapatna dolls in order to present
a form of representation but also transporting the handcraft into a rather
contemporary time, as being a monument to a pluralistic public trying to look forward
to the transformation on how we perceive ourselves and the society we live in.
