The visitor (m/f) is asked to pee in a urinal, the urine then runs through a transparent tube throughout the gallery and is collected in a colossal plastic bubble best described as an oval hot water bed. That (warm) bubble offers other visitors a seat, a lie-down, a wandering moment or - why not - a moment to reflect on the sense and nonsense of life itself. (Jos Van der Bergh)
We all need to pee, it is something omnipresent, a feeling we all know and we really wanted to use urine as a construction material. In fact, we always use the most normal things from our surroundings and turn them into objects or installations. Why not use urine, a material that otherwise would simply be wasted.
In a somewhat simplistic way we could call it a ‘democratic sculpture’. The more people contribute to this sculpture, the more comfortable it becomes.
