Bricks, engraving, embossing

The sculpture continues the theme of the materialization of the rhyme «brick / book volume», begun in «Complete set of works», giving it even greater scale.

The sculpture does not consist of modern bricks, but of ancient, already used in construction, conserving «time patina». Therefore, reproducing the same book model, each brick differs from the others in texture, size and character of deformations. This not only embodies the idea of the book, but also the very idea of “universal history”, an anonymous collective historical background, sedimentating in its main construction material.
