Monuments are historically concerned with claiming a ground that cannot be challenged – seeking to maintain assumptions of singularity, centralization, legacy and perpetuity. Countermonumental strategies are those ways of working that embrace multiplicities, peripheries, temporality and impermanence.

The interplay between material forms and the immaterial presence of memory is a major concern in the work of Craig Havens - one which begs to be explored in terms of its ability to shape new forms of artistic expression and which describes the memorial effect of intentional ritual and even unintentional chaotic events.
