Shopping cart, soil, potato plant, approx. 80 × 50 × 130cm
A shopping cart from the Polish supermarket Tesco stands in the room. The object on wheels is equipped with two red shopping baskets; together they are carrying a potato plant. The plant grew on top of the two red shopping baskets freely in the air and rooted downwards through the basket into the lower basket. The sculpture was created during my 6 months studying in Warsaw Art Academy in my studio. Starting with a found potato rooting, I planted it in a cup with soil, then in a pot with soil and fertilizer and finally in a shopping cart of Tesco supermarket, with that I showed the mobile and cultivated potato plant in an exhibition.
