MONVMENTO


En Madrid, 2013, el ayuntamiento decide mover la escultura de Cristóbal Colón de la peana que había en la plaza con su mismo nombre a su lugar original a 15 metros de distancia. La peana (que no pertenecía a la escultura original) quedó vacía. Decidí actuar sobre ella haciendo un gran monumento al fracaso. Escribí con globos dorados la frase “La has cagado” que flotó con helio hasta 20 metros del suelo durante un par de horas.

In Madrid, 2013, the city council decided to move the Cristóbal Colón sculpture from the pedestal that was in the square with its same name to its original place 15 meters away. The base (which did not belong to the original sculpture) remained empty. I decided to act on it making a great monument to failure. I wrote with golden balloons the phrase "La has cagado" ("You screwed it up" English version) that floated with helium up to 20 meters from the ground for a couple of hours.
