Remedy (Single Chamber) 1993
(Used Rosehip Teabags, Mild Steel.)
International Artists Centre, Poznan, Poland.
A large number of used teabags were used to build, inside a wet and cold cellar, a much larger than life, super-sized teabag which was plunged in a puddle outlined by a linear metal strip on the floor. Simple measures - a change of function, scale and the multiplication of the one-fold element, created an unexpected context which brought to mind the inconsistencies frequently met whilst looking inside a logically shaped structure of everyday life. The impossibility of measures taken by people to ward off the inevitability of death - the large teabag in the celler being also reminiscent of a house or a tombstone.
