Water, sewage pipe, electric pump, loudspeaker
78 x 27 x 27 cm each
On the terrace in front of the pool stands an installation of a ready-made object by Ana Alenso. residual dreams consists of a combination of urban, organic and sonic elements. Starting from a sewage pipe, the work questions their invisible presence in our everyday life in the city. What does the object tell us about its origin and use? A small fountain bubbles in a pipe, a loudspeaker reproduces water sounds. The interplay of the different components picks up the tension between the industrial and natural environment of TROPEZ. In her artistic practice, Alenso refers to cyclical, anthropocentric and self-destructive aspects in our relationship with nature.
