Luxembourgish banknotes of hundred francs (before the change to euros in january 2002)
The work was created for a group show entitled Mytholgy. It was shown in Luxembourg at Mikado Gallery and in the Gallery of the Pinacothèque in Athens in 2001. The main content of the work is ‘money can not buy happiness’. It is a cornucopia but it doesn’t contain anything, the empty inside is like a spiral leading to a black hole, a connotation to the high rate of suicides in Luxembourg. The sculpture was a modell for a
monumental work (3,10 x 2,20 x 2,20 m) with the aim to get the physical impression of the black tunnel but unfortunately no sponsoring bank was found.
