A huge floating sculpture moves in the space like a hunter. As it gently swallows and spits humain beings, our imagination wanders. Is this a modern Leviathan, an image of humanity itself or the shadow of an upcoming catastrophe? Described as an "elastic performance", WRECK can be shown indoor or outdoor and adapted to space-specific conditions.
