В духе авангарда / With the avant-guard spirit
The symbolic object consists of three main elements that represent this concept:
A path, that promotes the search, the desire to grow and innovate. It is an abstract line where the reflection and knowledge converge. A transition that begins in the present, to take a trip to a future in which we will try to find some answers. A passage with oscillations that alters the perspective and perception of space.
"The image is not a painting, but a structure around which we must circle, looking at it from all sides, peering down from above, investigating from below."
An intermediate enclosure in the path. An artistic station where everything happens: an ambience with no apparent gravity that mutates during the day and throughout the year, combining new compositions and atmospheres, through the play between lights, shadows and reliefs on the skin. Is the construction of a collective space for change, a new universe of abstract objects as raised Lissitzky in their Prouns. An element of persuasion to thrill the spectator and bring in a state of artistic and spiritual renewal.
"The artist constructs a new symbol with his brush. This symbol is not a recognizable form of anything which is already finished, already made, already existing in the world - it is a symbol of a new world, which is being built upon and which exists by way of people.”
A milestone, an empty canvas waiting to be painted, a "maybe" uncertain at first sight, in the distance, with no signs of anything. That only with a gesture of humility, going down that path, we will recognize in the base of that milestone, to the man, to the artist. The main force of change that can draw on that canvas, the first lines of the future across the modification of the present.
"Art is a universal and real expression of creative energy, which can be used to organize the progress of mankind; it is the tool of universal progress."
Cooperative ideal published by the International faction of constructivist, in De Stijl (1922). Cofounders: Lissitzky, van Doesburg and Hans Richter.
In that way, the monument represents the concept of social change, not as a political message but as generic action of growing and progress. Becomes a permanent update in itself. Is timeless, with a constant meaning. It serves both for the present and future generations. And always will commemorate the pioneering spirit of search and change that characterized to El Lissitzky and the Russian avant-garde in general.
