Manual For Rocks
A colourful assortment of more or less abstracted, large and oversized objects are mingling cheerfully on a sea of blue carpet. They resemble a somewhat curious living room or maybe a not quite homogenous flat-share: A whisk, a spoon, a cup, a sycamore seed, a rock. The piece ‘Manual For Rocks’ deals humorously with ideas around functionality, belonging, empathy and what it means to live in close proximity with others. The different objects piece together a hopeful, fragile and magical world, infiltrated by autobiographical and purely imaginary stories, a world that seems to be vibrating under the pressure of what is and might be real.
