Quinta Essentia
Heavy duty burlap bags, used for exporting goods such as coffeebeans from third world countries, exude real white gold, thus revealing their ‚quinta essentia‘, their true hidden nature and indicating profound transformation and change.
In addition this work also points at the increasing gap between the rich and the poor, and the growing social phenomena of exploitation and modern slavery.
