Safe place – utopia

rubber black balloons (moved by motors), baked soil (strong smell)

300 x 80 cm (one item)

Inflatable forms (black foil, over 2m) are attached to the ceiling with fishing lines. Bowls (metal antenna satellite, 80 cm) with soil are heated by electric stoves so that the soil gives off a strong smell. Baking soil is a process that I have copied from my home, where my mother used to “bake” soil in an oven in the spring. Baked soil remains sterile for young tomato plants. The entire home was filled with a specific smell of damp soil after rain.
