Streetlights of Memory – A Stand by Memorial, 2010/2015 conceived in 2010 for the public space in the City of Geneva is here displayed in its state of progress. In the frame of the 56th Venice Biennial, the installation will show the 87 elements constituting the final work – Les Réverbères 
de la Mémoire – but dismantled. The work itself is a homage to the victims of the 1915 Armenian genocide. A publication will accompany the installation in its new form and will try to reveal and describe the issues raised by the project, from its very beginning until the complex situation it faces for
its installation in Geneva.
