Fountain (2020)
6 × 6 × 1.5 meters

New large-scale sculptural installation made with deflated collapsed inflatables. I worked with new, straight-out-of-the-box objects, freshly folded, smelling of fresh plastic; and with leaky, used, semi-moldy air mattresses, rubber boats, beach balls and armbands rescued from garden sheds, cellars and attics. We launched an appeal to the local community to donate inflatables for this project and collected more than 500 pieces in all shapes and colors.
