The Uneasy Wait, 2022
Sand, suitcase handle
The installation consists of a sand pile with a suitcase handle. The amount of sand used is equal to the volume of a suitcase. The work proposes an abstract bag to carry, which is dysfunctioned simply by the nature of the material. If the handle was held, the "bag" would only collapse. The only way to keep it together is not touching it. At the same time it is exactly what makes it dysfunctional. The work addresses the concept of migration, and situations where we are forced to go, have to wait, or don't know what to do.
