FOUNT OF WORK
Technical specification: site-specific installation, 2016, sink, water, 160 x 350 x 400 cm
The piece was executed in the former Factory of Automatic Lathes from the 1970s. It had a space dedicated to relaxation, a bath house for the employees. From an old sink, and water supply on site, Kornelia created a fountain alluding to the “relaxation zone”. The fountain that creates the murmur of water blends with its surroundings, and the sound echoes around the enormous space generating new sounds. Thanks to this action the artist introduces new symbolic values to the symbolic workplace, pointing out the necessity for balance and maintaining equilibrium. The piece had not been preserved, but it marks an action in which the artist started using water in her work.
