For the installation, turned wood on a lathe to create cylindrical shapes are painted with colorful oil pastels while they were rotating. The pastels become heated up by the rapid turning of the material around its own axis.
Papersheets, sometimes folded into strips, are pushed onto the rotating wooden objects, whose surfaces consequently rub off the colour, corresponding to the angle and pressure intensity. This turns upside down the conventional process of frottage, in which an object lying under the paper emerges through rubbing the surface with a drawing medium.
In the installation the wooden objects, installed in direct contact to the papers, appear with associations to sport, peasant and fetish weapons like flaits, clubs, nunchakus or double dildos.
