This installation, comprising a basin and three crocodiles, is another silent representation of a childhood memory of the artist, who regularly visited Antwerp Zoo as a boy. The basin is made of cardboard, with rectangular sheets of cellophane
for the windows. Three crocodiles lie on the plastic tiles of the basin. They are made of coarse sand in a plastic sheath, wrapped in fishing net. The atypical choice of materials adds to the poetry of the installation.
