Wooden box, 10 glass-compartments, 68 soaps, front glass with 10 smell - holes, 160 x 80 cm

Colored, fragrant soaps are arranged in a depot like cabinet. Separated from the outside by a front glass, there are holes that invite you to smell; a membrane-like paper film nevertheless reduces further exploration by the senses. The clear colors are barely recognizable, the fragrances cannot be distinguished, only a pastel-colored. One seems to see just an illusion, a reproduction of an object. 

Smell and sensual stimuli can weaken or disappear, even over a longer period of time.

When the senses fade, the idea of things changes too. The loss of the sense of smell most clearly indicates an infection with Covid-19. Not being able to smell any longer deprives the diversity of life of essential meaning.
