What is a road when it is not fulfilling its function? Can it still be called a road or is it something else? We see constructions made of tarmac and concrete that resemble roads, stairs, plots. They are not intended to connect anything. From a distance they can be confused with land art. One can physically place oneself in the new space they create, wander around and on top of these modern monuments. Romantic notions of landscape, sunsets, dust clouds, inviting colors and blue skies, all conspire together to reveal ‘’The Banality of the Avant-Garde’’.
