Macedonia 10 Denar 1992

Macedonium. The Ilinden Monument
Kruševo, Macedonia
Futuristic monument to Macedonian national uprising, engineered and built during the Socialist ’60s. The abstract monument is designed by a late architect-artist couple Iskra and Jordan Grabul. It has been maintained, but it never took emotional place in the hearts of ordinary Macedonians yearning for the new-old, post-socialist identity based on a mix of values in-between Byzantium and the times of the Alexander the Great. This structure is a master piece in the struggle against figuration, although it resembles anything from bio-molecular models to medieval weaponry.
