INSTALLATION, CERAMICS, 
approx 300x200x100cm, 2021

Almost 300 casts of sugar beet roots in a sanitary ceramic mass glazed with sugar beet leaf ash are randomly arranged in a pile. If these non-productive production bodies represent the ideal image of a muscular fruiting body without a mouth, without limbs, without organs and without posture or expression, then the ashes in this ceramic installation play the role of a witness. Just as the excess ingested sugar can be detected in my body in the form of reserve fat, the brown color of the ashes also tells of the presence of copper, earth and other chemical elements and substances with which the sugar beet in the course of their live came into contact through conventional agriculture.
