Dimensions: 200 x 400 x 400
Materials: gaze, PVC, feathers, wood, copper, light, water

This 2-m-high object which can be entered with naked feet is referring to the discussion of PID (pre-implantation diagnostics) and is inspired by a couple of newspaper articles referring to frozen embryos and associated law quarrels throughout the world. Once inside the object which is in fact resembling an uterus the spectator can read the writing on the bottom of the water basin: ‘where does art stop and where does life start?’ which is a quotation of Christian Boltanski.  In the artist book which is part of the installation (not shown in the foto documentation) the respective newspaper articles as well as scientific and philosophical input can be found and read according to personal taste.

The installation is together with ‘Rubikon, Rot, Rot’ (->) part of a double installation under the overall title ‘Rot, Rot’.
