Introduction

Eike Eplik is showing two contemplation objects at “Home of Good Thoughts” – “Wednesday Lunch I” and “Wednesday Lunch II”. At first glance, the form of the object resembles an animal or plant, certainly something organic. Indeed, it is a Jerusalem artichoke, often found in the fruit and vegetable departments of the finer supermarkets. During corona, many found a passion for cooking – restaurants and bars were closed and eating pasta every day became too much. People baked their own bread and tried exotic recipes and dishes. There was also an exceptional amount of time to think and to be bored. This great boredom made all kinds of boring things interesting, a simple domestic object could provoke a fantasy that led to unexpected places… Eplik’s work could be interpreted as an object of contemplation that frees the viewer’s mind to follow whatever thoughts occur…
