Garden (Appropriation in the shape of a fluffy toy), 2017

Wool
76 x 46 x 15 cm

This work is a fluffly wollen toy in the shape of the garden that I had been seeing through the window of my apartment. The garden was inaccessible both from the inside and from the outside of the building. In order to appropriate the space, I made it into a teddy with which I could relate to physically and that I could hug. The cushion acquires the role of transitional object between myself and space.
