Straw pellets, wood. 4.5 x 1.3 m, and 4.7 x 2.3 m
A site-specific installation in an old barn, transformed into a gallery space. Two wooden constructions carry multiple rows of straw pellets. Stirring underneath a quiet atmosphere, constant, yet almost undetectable, movements caused by stresses inherent to the construction and to the materials leave a tension in the air.
Without any adhesive to keep them in place, the pellets slowly slide along the strip as the wood sags from their weight. The pressure increases, until, eventually, the pellets falls to the floor, a single one here, a handful there.
