BIGGER LEAK THAN EXPECTED
SEPTEMBER 14 – OCTOBER 12, 2012

In the spirit of absurdity, Bigger Leak Than Expected explores the half-thought, makeshift solutions of the lazy or preoccupied. A leak from the ceiling is caught by a metal bucket, which has become full. A tube attaches the bucket to another, channeling the over-flow from the first bucket to a second and again, to a third. Walinga’s work comically highlights the amount of time taken to create this three-bucket structure instead of simply emptying the first bucket. By constructing the leak, Walinga adds a performative element: the paradox of creating, and indirectly maintaining the problem that you also seek to solve.
