The sculpture is a reproduction of a dead huge squid, and it’s just lying on the floor. Each section has more or less two metres, and put them together, they become a six metre long piece.
It was important for me to reproduce it in this dead condition. It’s not that much about the reproduction of a natural, realistic...a reproduction of nature, than more about a reference to the strange moment that this creature comes to us as garbage of nature.
The idea is to create an artificial river. I asked some cleaners to make this choreography, trying to bring the water to the centre of the scene. It’s interesting because at the same time that they are working together, it looks like a battle because they need to keep this water in the centre of the scene.
This picture calls ‘Cleaner’ My idea in the whole series is to propose an action. The action shows two moments, the end and the beginning, and never the middle, so it’s a kind of frustrate action.
