I'm listing mineral waters for My Favorite Waters for Water Torture of Millionaires. The work will be exhibited in June at Korjaamo Galleria in Helsinki in a group show titled Cool Water. It will consist of an A4 list drawing and a selection of mineral waters in crystal bottles. Jaana is having hard time trying to find bottled water in Helsinki. The Finns think that everything else than municipal tap water is useless luxury and an ecological crime. Maybe they are right but I've never heard anybody saying a word about crystal bottled wine what is imported to Finland from Southern Europe or even from other continents.
Anyhow, I'm now interested in the water torture. It leaves no external marks on victims and has been and will always be one of the most favored torture methods around the world. Practices of the water torture include dunking, forced ingestion, waterboarding adn the infamous Chinese water torture used by the CIA in its secret torture camps.
I like the idea of torturing the richest capitalists, the most corrupted politicians and the most powerful warlords with Bling H2O, a Tennesee spring water purified in a nine-step process that includes ozone, ultraviolet treatment and micro-filtration. It is sold in frosted bottles decorated with Swarovsky crystals.
