About the art: This work subverts the authoritative voice of the political sphere that commemorates this place as a preserved history, an event that has passed, a theme park that services guests. For those who live here it is a community that has its own history and future, a living breathing entity conflicted like any other. There are stories here that are not for the tourists.
