Title: Some complexities in Ghanaian monumental representations
Authors: Kudiabor, Kwame David
Issue Date: 3-Sep-2010
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the complexities in the thoughts that informed the production of monumental representations and how the logic of the monument postulated earlier in the development of theory in sculpture influenced and affected these traditions ideals in Ghana. The study examined the relationship that exists between the idea behind these representations and their philosophical relations, emphasizing on material use and backed beliefs. The approach administered is a descriptive one engineered to interpret and describe fundamental concepts that guide thoughts in such a canonized and imposed tradition whiles paralleling these to the stated justified objectives outlined in this thesis. The principal conclusion achieved was an interactive monumental representation that is responsive and susceptible to conditions of change. One spectacular conclusion was when bees took over “Borderless 2”, mounted at the forecourt of the MFA Block…Only in dying, life… 1 Ursula K. Le Guin, (Spivack, 1984)
