When the content has been poured

Installation view: Q – space, Copenhagen, Denmark. March 2016.
Fine tuned wine glasses, acrylic, wood, mechanical components, electric motor.
Variable dimensions.


Four glass wines, that can represent a symbol of luxury, are now upside down. When the time arrives to strike them, there is no wine left anymore. It has been poured out of the glasses. The work demonstrates that the pursuit of success and material accumulation can sacrifice the actual meaning of life.
This minimal installation produces soft, well-tuned sounds, at totally unpredictable patterns. A ‘puppet master’ provides constant control to the ‘persons’ behind the glasses, who nevertheless strive to become independent and follow their own paths of ‘success’.
