Evian Desert

The term “Evian desert” creates an association of bottled water in a desert. In addition, two bathrobes – one standing and the other collapsed empty on a pile of sand speak of clothed emptiness. Kris’s own interpretation is the following: “At a festival someone once asked me how I was doing. I didn’t want to give the usual empty answer, so I said, ‘I’m like a millionaire in the desert’. Wealth and thirst hand-in-hand, with the feeling that anything is possible inside.”
