Office for Monument Construction
tells the story of people who come from a town which no longer exists. Having no better place to stay, they inhabit a deserted concrete complex situated in the middle of a vibrant city. However, this surrogate home is bound for demolition. Within this precarious situation, the characters find reassurance and order by creating their own logic and reality, performing strange repetitive games and routines. The characters are on a tireless search for something which might define and represent their identity. The result is an assortment of unusual objects. Gradually a museum-like collection, built around a fictitious narrative, begins to emerge.
