OVERLOAD  Installation:

Material: wood, recycled plastic, tape, metal, clothes,
LCD-screen, plastic bowl, casted hands, strap, hinges.
Size: 300x350x250cm (each house)


Three buildings
all made with thin battens, one only with three walls; it creates an open space
in the middle where a pile of colorful clothes lay. On top is a small LCD-screen with a fast time-lapse; a row of faces in black and white, the carrier of clothing looks back at me. I see women and men, briefly in motion.

The next building looks unfinished, tilted on its side; a spatial sculptural-drawing from battens stands in space. Leaning towards one side is a kind of travel-kit (blankets on a simple frame); on the other side is something like a door.

The third house has walls and roof, is this the house of arrival, the destination? Another travel-kit and a slightly surreal bowl with two cast hands at the bottom. Whether the stay here is permanent or not remains open to question.
