URGENCY (under my umbrella)

180 cm in diameter, 240 cm in height
umbrella, plastic stand, timber, castor wheels, dog collar and leash
shown at Far Reach, Berlin, R Gallery

Merging off-the-shelve objects with some leftover timber, this sculpture offers shade on the go. The result is humorous, yet it masks a graver situation: the daunting reality of a shifting climate regime and the urgent need to temper the heat.
