The Cube


Fiberglass, steel
225 x 225 x 225 cm

Humans are nothing but biogas producers in the large-scale installation The Technocrat. The Cube embodies its most rigorous form of industrially farming humans. Bodies are fixed to frames, food and anaesthetic alcohol are administered while tubes attached to their anuses suck up the excrement. These units lend themselves to efficient stacking.

The Cube (2007) was part of the following exhibition(s):
‘Let’s Get Physical’, Atelier Van Lieshout, Rotterdam (NL), 2020 – 2021
‘Vrijstaat’, Kasteel Keukenhof, Lisse (NL), 2014
‘Das Haus’, Ludwig Forum für Internationale Kunst, Aachen (DE), 2008 – 2009
