This sculpture is based on the confrontation of two discourses, one is embodied by a sculpture of a worker carrying bricks, the other is a monster of contemporary boundless aesthetics. Old dogmas and prejudices are confronted with new reality. It is a metaphor for building walls in front of something, which we have long been surrounded by.
