The Shower Piece, 1995
1995, Rotterdam. In collaboration with Peter

The Shower Piece is a reconstruction of the
shower of Arno van Roosmalen, city curator at
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and the first
guest invited by REST‘). He lived in the studio
of one of the initiators for three weeks,
studying, experiencing and describing his
selection of art works, texts and music. He
also invited guests to talk about the concept
of the project. There was no publicity made;
after this period he talked about REST and its
impact during lectures at art-schools and
artist-run-spaces. The Shower Piece is a copy
of his shower at home, for him the only place
to think and to reflect. It was fully operative
during REST. After REST The Shower Piece was
shown as a ’non functional’ object at Cubitt
