Stainless steel, fiberglass, linear actuators


Testimony is an installation that explores the complex interplay between political power, societal structures, and the questioning of established systems. Through a carefully constructed arrangement of elements, the artwork challenges the viewer to reflect on the nature of authority, its relevance in contemporary society, and the fundamental order that underpins it.

At the core of the installation stands a doric column, an emblematic symbol of political power and establishment. This iconic architectural feature embodies the strength, endurance, and permanence associated with traditional structures of authority. However, the column is not presented in its pristine form but rather subjected to a continuous assault.

Surrounding the column is a metal structure that holds it in place, conveying a sense of stability and support. Yet, upon closer inspection, the viewer notices the presence of 24 linear actuators, each meticulously positioned to pound the column incessantly. These mechanical devices relentlessly fracture the column, transforming it from a symbol of power into a shattered testament of its own vulnerability.

The title Testimony encourages multiple interpretations, resonates both politically and religiously. From a political perspective, the artwork serves as a testimony of the establishment—a statement of the existing power structures within society. However, it also invites contemplation from a religious standpoint, evoking notions of bearing witness and revealing hidden truths.

Testimony compels the viewer to question the role of the establishment and its presence within society. The relentless pounding of the column reflects the ongoing scrutiny and criticism that institutions of power face. By challenging the assumed permanence and stability of these structures, the artwork invites a reevaluation of their significance and impact. It serves as a critique, interrogating the purpose and legitimacy of established systems. It encourages reflection on the fragility of power, the necessity of societal examination, and the potential for transformation. 

Ultimately, this artwork calls upon the viewer to consider their role as a witness and active participants in shaping the future of society.

Be my witness.

Be the testimony.
