Cellar character of the gallery HIT inspired the author to reflect on space as the ancient Egyptian tomb "Mastab", an eternal place where time stopped consciously with the desire for infinite duration. The first room refers to the moment of guarding, material strength, which is designed to deter any violators of peace. In the middle room catafalque indicates size of the human body with a face that extends across time. The last part is a recap from all subjects. The exhibition loosely follows the author's previous projects, for example. the exhibition in the gallery Futura in Prague "Sleeping force", which opened the questionof sleeping options through the sculptural form.
