Roadkill is a site-specific installation, created for the Mattress Factory Art Museum in Pittsburgh (USA). By introducing the fluorescent lights and gleaming white tiles into the warmly lit historic building I have created a pure, pristine space, which, upon entering, creates a noticeable shift in perception. Working with locally found materials, I acquainted myself with the assortment of the American second-hand and tried to address its narrative qualities and the aura of exoticism it held for me on my first visit to the United States.

The functional residue of the found objects encourages new connotations — the objects appear intimate, although impersonal and oscillate between animate and inanimate being.
