Monumental Junkyard:

Monumental Junkyard: Named by the accusation of the Lewis Glucksman Gallery dumping marble doors outside in Ireland. These materials used were reproduced in Chinese Marble, that continues to be used in kitsch interior décor, lifted back from the renaissance sculpture.

'The reproduction of wasted domestic doors in marble responds to issues of regeneration and historical-preservation, material and symbolic value, and the ambiguity of contexts as part of affluent consumerist society.'
