Thing about Desire, 2018, installation, 3 x 3.5 m PVC object filled with water, HD video projection without sound 6’35”
The spatial form is a transparent bag with water, in dimensions of large scale 3 x 3.5 m. Freely placed, takes shape that dictates the material and pressure. It is not imposed geometry, it is decided by randomness. Water as a matter, which essentially does not have its own shape, gives form in this composition. All softness, folds of the object, give the impression of control over matter, but leave a shadow of uncertainty.
Complemented with an image in which minimal border movement is a lethal threat. It’s so hard to determine the exact moment that is dangerous when there is too much, and when we can afford more. Installation is a reflection on things that – like water – do not have their form by nature. Just the human desire – takes the form of „what we strive for”. But in this abstract mass the potential is hidden – the inner force that threatens us with an uncontrolled spill.
