Title- "Monument (s) for the Sun"
Concrete, mortar, steel and souvenirs.
“Monuments for the Sun” Is a group of four sculptures; each comprises four or five modules that can be assembled and disassembled.
They are made of casted concrete with steel reinforcement. Embedded in the concrete exterior sides of the different modules, there are fragments and objects of souvenirs that are possible to find at the tourist stores in his hometown, Lagos, in Portugal.
The sculpture’s materials and form are inspired by an abandoned building also from Lagos. This building was to be a tourist Hotel, but it was abandoned in 1974 before completion, becoming a ruin that almost blended as a natural element from the landscape. It was demolished in 2022.
