When: October 2009
Where: Cittadellarte-Pistoletto Foundation (Biella-Italy).
What: design of soap balls with coins inside.
Who: by Saioa Olmo, during the Unidee artist in residence program of Cittadellarte-Pistoletto Foundation, and with the support of the Cultural Department of the Government of the Basque Country.
These soap balls have the peculiarity that they have coins in their inside. This way, when we rub out hands with them, we would be making the same gesture as when we think what we would do if we had a concrete amount of money. Meanwhile we wear the soap-ball away, we get closer to our object of desire.
These soap balls are part of a line of work in relation with desire, and in this concrete case with regard to material desires.
