For this practice-led PhD entitled How to make a monument I have produced three works: A Spartan Monument, Ongoing Monument to Indecent Activities 399BC– and A Monument to Toilets: An Exhibition and Procession. These works respond to my own experience growing up as the son of Greek immigrants, and specifically to what this meant for the way that I ‘came out’ as a gay man, the way I encountered the city as a space. These works honour a set of experiences and a tradition of resistance.
