In Memoriam is the final project for my Master Degree from the Düsseldorf Art Academy. Conceived as a temporary artistic intervention at the Plaza de Bolivar, one of the most important public places for the city and country. This project confronts the collective memory of one of the most dramatic and saddest episodes in Colombian history: the destruction of the Legislative Palace and the violent death of their occupants on the 6th and 7th of November, 1985.

 

The project contemplates, among others: the idea of bringing back to life the facade of the former Legislative Palace by raising the former facade in front of the current one while projecting large scale shadows of passing people; recalling images of diceased people and stimulating collective memories of the historic event. During the intervention the square would be temporally closed.
