atmosphere, 2015, contaminated soil, glas, 62cm x 68cm x 69cm; dogwood shrub, 152cm

 

The contaminated soil was taken from an abandoned plant bed in which a tree was poisoned. There is now growing, newly planted, a shrub from an outside area. The space under glass symbolizes the climate of the city: Junk and remains decay to an earthy surface on which a new beginning could take place. However, to what extent poisonous contaminated sites still limit the process, to what extent the individual wants to expose them and whether he can avoid them altogether, remains open.
