Gare refers to a traditional simple cart which used to enable the transport of cargo in the past, as well as provide mobility for the one transporting the cargo. Once again, I used my characteristic game of ironizing our conventional views of the world and numerous other things that we take for granted, but this only holds true at first glance. In this project a simple craftsmanship object was transformed into a master’s object. It is made in stone, which is heavy as well as fragile, which makes the basic function of the object, i.e. movement, difficult. And yet the vehicle works.
