cargo guts, 2015

Baumwollstoffe, Heu; 2m x 1m x 8m

The work cargo guts // Rosinas hay shows human organs that are designed in a very efficient form and practically prepared for the transfer. In this state none of the organs would be able to work properly, they became cartoon like version of their former purpose. The title refers to the colloquial meaning of guts as courage, a much needed personal quality today when in need to adapt to rapidly changing demands of our time. The cloth tubes are filled with my grandmother┬┤s hay which she had stored for 20 years after closing down her farm. In her own little rebellion against transforming living conditions she had refused to get rid of her handmade product in all these years.
