There are safes. We have no keys. The title of this work explains the social state of late capitalism, and not only the form of the artwork. The two found, locked safes belonged to a closed private bank. Their presentation within the public art space devoted to development of culture is the making visible of urgent and poetic transformation of the relationship between the private and the public, raising awareness of compassion and experience as such, of giving and of taking.
