"Monument to a Lost Civilization: Ilya/Emilia Kabakov "
2000-03-03 until 2000-03-26
University of South Australia Art Museum
Adelaide, , AU Australia

Monument To A Lost Civilization is a project tracing the desire of an individual to construct 'a life of one's own' it depicts the tension between the real and the ideal, and the struggle of developing one's humanity within the confines of a strictly authoritarian society. Although developed as a specific comment on the political system of Totalitarianism, Monument To A Lost Civilization refers to anyone, in any society which deforms the human personality which forces us to submit and betray our true nature.

Ilya Kabakov is recognised as one of the most important European artists to have emerged in the late 20th century. Since 1989 he and his wife Emilia have worked collaboratively, with their installation projects achieving international acclaim. Monument To A Lost Civilization is the first major project by the Kabakovs to be seen in Australia.

Monument To A Lost Civilization will be open every day from 11:00am - 5:00pm and, during Artists' Week from 4 - 9 March, the exhibition is open to 8:00pm.
