Flying waterjugs formed out of aromatic half-transparent soap associate deep water, snatched-up dreams and crystalline worlds. A spacious installation is created by means of a large number of these objects fashioned from soap. The partially ancient jug forms are found in illustrations of ancient bathing scenes which are utilized as spatially organizing and exhibition structuring elements. The aroma of the soaps fill the air, inviting dreams, awakening memories and opening spaces.
