In Presents the artist used three tea pots which her mother received as wedding gifts. If desires are inherited the same way objects are then these presents function as ‘magical objects’ that have the power to transmit a part of their energy, as well as specific feelings. In a way it is as if they always bear a part of our own reality. Through an invented ritual the artist aims to conjure this ‘inheritance’. Throughout the duration of the video the teapots – while emptying their contents into a pot – cause a shrill sound which conjures associations of a state of emergency, a warning. The throwing of coins in the water at the end of the video opens a possibility for new wishes and desires.
