"Aguas"

Installation

" A g u a s "
 

"Aguas" is spanish and means: Caution / Attention.
But originally it is derived from the word: Agua / Water.

In the Middle Ages, at the time in which still did not exist a sewerage, people shouted:

„AGUAS”, to announce that they are going to throw dirty water out of the window or the door.

Up to the present day, people use this expression, which has slipped into the subconscious.

Instead of saying: „Be careful / Attention” (spanish: Cuidado), they say: „Waters” (Spanish: Aguas)
 

The installation “AGUAS” plays with the forgotten word meaning

and points in ironic manner to the global drinking water problems.

 

The water simply runs away, it goes!
