The work consists in a series of 30 elements. Each element is an assemblage of two postcards portraying different obelisks from all over the world. The monument is always the same, while the background is different in each fragment.


L’opera consiste in una serie di 30 elementi, ognuno dei quali è costituito da due cartoline postali tagliate in due parti e assemblate, raffiguranti obelischi situati in luoghi diversi nel mondo. Mentre la figura dell’obelisco rimane costante, il paesaggio circostante cambia in ogni frammento.
