Monument as the main recipient of power has been erased, leading to the pedestal as symbol. The power behind the symbol can be altered through the same logics of monumentality, contrasting, intensifying, or modifying its identity. The viewer's gaze is usually subordinated to the pedestal imposing its presence in a place, its ideology, and character.
As a memory container, the object is connected to documents that have been historically tied to symbols and discourses of power. The archive could be accessible and modifiable, it is not static therefore its materiality changes depending on context and time.
