Carsten Hšller - Roméo
AKNE, 1994-99 Lemontree, skirt, iceblades, watering can, water and sweat.
Apollo was madly in love with DaphnŽ. But nymphs or their children could die if loved by a god... So DaphnŽ called her mother for help. In order to save her daughter, the Goddess of Earth changed her into a tree with human odour .
tree is regularly watered with sweat. Roméo is in charge for that;
during the exhibition, he is regularly going to the sauna and collects his
sweat for watering the tree.
