A little plastic greenhouse‚ 155x205x155 cm circa‚ two trees dressed in suit coats and ties‚ scattered traces of sawdust.
A parable between cohabitation and asphyxiation.
“You are so close that I cannot breathe‚ you’re nearly suffocating me.
I need air.
You’re out of bounds‚ move away.
I’ll straighten my tie‚ the suit coat is so tight I can hardly breathe.
I won’t make a move‚ it looks great on me.
My foliage is not enough to absorb the excess.
Is there anyone who can turn down the air conditioning
or turn it off completely?”
