MONUMENT — a film by Duncan Pickstock (see FILMS)

‘I think the form of the bench is something very interesting, something “democratic” and useful, something to share, a bench is a gift and an offer (to the body and the spirit), a bench creates time, a bench can create encounters and dialogue, a bench is something which opens one space toward another space, a bench is always in a specific location, somebody decided to put it there, somebody did engage (or get committed – falling in love) with this decision, a bench – once placed on its location – starts itself to create “a place”, to create “history” and to create “memory”‘ [The artist Thomas Hirschhorn writing about MONUMENT, September 11th, 2010]

MONUMENT — music by Stephen Fretwell, recorded by Guy Massey
