Hero’s Journey

Hero’s Journey (Vitrine), is a 4 meter long glass vitrine filled with 1000 litres of human urine, lit by LED’s on both sides. The sculpture is the result of a collecting process, where visitors of the legendary techno nightclub Berghain in Berlin have been asked to contribute their urine.

This work is a fluid travelogue and a liquid archeology of ecstasy, directly derived from the participating bodies. The title is referring to the motif of the classical monomyth by Joseph Campbell, the Hero’s Journey.
