Circle of Necessities (Halay), 2013 - Photo by Gert Jan van Rooij



An ongoing collection created by visiting almost every shop and supermarket in Amsterdam, the installation brings together all different brands and types of water bottles that are available in the city. Differing from the religious zem-zem water to the highly priced designer bottles, the collections brings a picture of the economical flows and immigration routes of the city and brings equity to the bottles' presences. Further information can be traced through these products as the the origins of brands and the water resource from which they are bottled. Melted ice from Japan may be sold as high-end product in England. Every bottle stands almost hand in hand as if in a collective ritual. By standing in the middle as surrounded by water, the viewer becomes an island. The title, refering to the saying Even the snake doesn't touch to whom is drinking water thus creates an area of protection within itself.
