Press release

On the floor will be arranged a number of concrete basins of varying depths. They have been treated with a mixture of yogurt, cow manure, beer and moss in the hope to nurture various forms of growths on the surface. Three powder-coated steel shapes lined with felt will hang from the wall and next to them, various drawings of fragmented teapots. And also scattered around the space will be a number of milled profiles in larch.

In addition, I asked Professor Timothy Morton to write a text for the exhibition. You can take it with you in the form of a small booklet.
