This work was performed in September 2000, at Kalemegdan, the central park of Belgrade. The already present objects – sculptures of the famous Serbian artists, writers and scientists – were used as ready-mades to create a new work.

With this action the artist tries to “make them visible again.” The sculptures in this project are understood as something interactive, which stands there to enter a dialogue with the visitors and the present time and culture.

This object/installation was constructed in New Belgrade, by a petrol station. It was envisioned as a comment upon the urban context in which the work appeared. The Pyramid is made of building bricks used in modern constructions. With its material, form and color the pyramid makes us think of the elements of modern architecture of New Belgrade and the structure of the station as its immediate surrounding.
