The place of action is the room for rest
Beverage in, drip drop, bladder out
Don´t rush, gently flush, and wash oh please
This is about the ease of fluids, the ease of secrets
In any form of communication
One can only trust the liquid and flow with it
Visitors of the location are not informed about the fact that microphones are being installed in the toilet at first. Some actions are thus audible and their sounds are directly transmitted to a speaker placed inside the gallery's ventilation system.
From there, other visitors as well as the public in front of the place can listen to them. As the restroom is located in the back, the unaware "actors" were not directly visible and remained anonymous - unless they really want to reveal themselves. Over the course of an evening, people start to realise where these familiar but strange noises come from, they start to be aware of the installation and in many ways, the stage.
The work is an invitation to discover, perform and interact with each other by encouraging the audience to lose the fear of their most private noises as well as thoughts.
