The entire installation is based on the apple as a symbol of Entity, as an everyday event that is repeated, as a gesture, as a moment. This installation addresses the issue of problems, repeated every day, communication gaps and shallow human relations in general. We cannot believe that the language used is always essential in every conversation. As soon as we have something important to say, we are forced to become silent. The words pass through people, while the silence is never lost. The work speaks of the communication gap , one void, as a serious problem/fact, which is constantly repeated. The shallow human relations, the relations from a simple need to avoid something that cannot be avoided. Jelena wants the audience to communicate and interact with the piece. To do so, they will have to take and eat the apples and throw the leftovers, creating new work.
