it combines the industrial with the organic, the familiar with the alien and builds a connection between human and thing
Berlin, betakontext, 2017
For a „rite of spring“ the Berlin based space for art and discourse „betakontext“ calls for manipulations and additions of a guest room. My fountain suggests contradictory ways of handling and functionality and does not comply with what it´s outer appearance implies. The ambiguous choice of material intertwines references of areas that normally don´t overlap. Fragments known from utility- or outdoor- gear and applications resembling oversized dentist supplies clash with an incitement of lingerie or sexual associations. Growing series of tailor-made fountains.
