“In this installation you can encounter two objects that are very familiar: a trolley, like the ones that we use for traveling, and a water bottle that is empty. These objects are removed from their usual purpose and they are abandoned or left alone. They have a collision or an accident together. The trolley is sitting on top of the water bottle, crushing it with its handle and moving very slowly back and forth, constantly crushing the water bottle and creating a sound. So it’s almost like a conversation between the two, but using their own particular languages. This for me was a good way to be able to encounter these objects once again, but to render them strange, as if I don’t know who they are and I have to rethink what they are and what their purpose is.”
