Installation

The boxes on the floor are inhabited by mealworms, which are used for producing fertilizers by means of vermicomposting. The worms can digest and biodegrade Styrofoam. 

The mealworms are cared for daily. Their boxes are cleaned and the lighting and humidity are adjusted by museum personnel.

The works on the wall are made of the artist’s home-produced bio-plastic. Her repurposed luxury images of equestrian sports and high-end leisure pursuits address the themes of recycling, consumerism and the transience of matter.
