Message No 1

Message nr. 1 is a reconstruction of Latvian conceptual artist Ēriks Božis (1969) installation “For local calls” that will be located at the entrance of the Latvian National Museum of Art. Riga, Strēlnieku laukums (Rifleman square), 1995.

Soros Centre for Contemporary Art yearly exhibition ”Monument”. Three phone booths that visually repeat the composition of the nearby standing monument of riflemen. At first, nothing unusual but looking closer it becomes clear that both of these monuments

have lost communication with the public. These monuments are like phone booths that can’t be used. Both placed 5 metres too high.
