'WORKS FALL TRUE!' by Ryts Monet, neon sculpture, electrical materials, metal structures, scaffolding,
neon size: 300 x 70 cm,  2020

Installed on scaffolding seven metres above from the ground, against the backdrop of the ruins of one of the circular ramparts of Faganga Castle, the red neon sign echoes the famous phrase by Karl Marx and Frederich Engels taken from the Communist Party poster: WORKERS FROM ALL THE WORLD, UNITE!

During the night or in low light conditions, only a few letters of the inscription light up and the slogan is transformed, bringing out a new meaning on two lines:
T     R   U   E!

This is the first artwork exhibited in a public space by the artist after the first European lock down period March-May 2020, due to COVID-19. The site-specific work was presented in August 2020 on the top of the hill in the medieval village of Fagagna (UD), in Northeast Italy, 50 km from the border with former Yugoslavia.
