Leandro Erlich
Canal de la Ciudad, Argentina’s public television channel, aired an interview with Leandro Erlich in which the Argentine artist spoke about his site­ specific intervention La Democracia del Símbolo (The Democracy of the Symbol) at the Obelisco, the iconic monument in the city of Buenos Aires.

The video shows the manner in which the tip of this obelisk visually "disappears" through an extension of its last, uppermost, meters. As a second act, the video shows the scale reproduction of the tip of the obelisk on display at the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano in Buenos Aires (MALBA). Open to the public, this work recreates the four views from the four windows of the Obelisco. In this manner, Erlich allows visitors access inside the monument that is not allowed in the actual Obelisco.
