Emergency Exit

stainless steel, aluminum, lead, steel wire, acrylic, 22 x 40 x 11 cm, 2010

In Emergency Exit I work with a familliar object from the urban transit system - the small hammer accompanied by instructions for it`s use in emergency situations. By switching the hammer with a knife an obviously lethal weapon I speak about the impossibility of salvation.
With this expression I want to argue my own point, I am giving a warning about the status quo. About the dead end we are moving towards, about violence as a universal method.
