Originally, the jug was glued to the platform painted with acrylic paint. Since this paint layer hardly has any grip on the surface, here a safer method of display has been chosen.
As a precaution, it is recommended to keep the jug and the metal tray separate. During an exhibition the jug may be secured by means of double-sided tape. As a result, storing this artwork has become a lot easier and safer.
This work is in the collection of MuHKA / Museum of Contemporary Art, Antwerp – Inv. no. M00351.
