I took a suitcase with some 20kgs of earth on the plane to Genève and the train to Lausanne. In the gallery I made an installation which related to the work of minimal artist Donald Judd. Instead of perspex and aluminium shapes I used 3 old drawers that I found at a garbage dump. I filled 2 buckets with water of Lac Leman. I stepped into the bottom drawer of my Donald Judd piece and proceeded to open the suitcase. I grabbed some of the earth inside and put it in the drawer above my head. Then I took some water from a bucket and poured it in the top drawer. (22 June 2007)
