Black Heart Leaking – Instruction for Amateur Constructor Female

Objects fill the lead roles: swaying plants with succulent leaves; and vases, tall and lean like the torsos of young women. Metal and plastic foil, leather straps and piles of flour, enigmatic symbols and garishimages, all accompanied by shrill music and a tumult of voices, mechanical clattering, angry snorting and the cracking of a whip. (Elke Schüttelkopf)
