"‘Domestication of Pyramids’ is a stunning piece of installation art by the Czech artist and architect Magdalena Jetelova. Installed in a number of locations between 1992 and 1994, the work deals strongly with dislocation. Here a large fragment of a pyramid stands inside a gallery. It appears to rip through the walls of the space and the viewer can easily imagine that the structure continues past these restraints and spans to the scale of an actual pyramid.

Jetelova’s work comments on this dislocation; the Western mentality of taking important parts of our history and placing them inside museums.”
