Inside the “Greenhouse Mummy” sculptures the skin-like surface of a piece of roof asphalt from Chile rolls into the transparency of a simple sheet of plastic to merge into nearly any possible thing. For this to remain like this, the “Greenhouse Mummy” sculptures have to remain closed. That way the “Greenhouse Mummy” sculptures can engage with the thing of things and the spirit of things.
