An installation about a woman named Alice, a man named Banjo, a doll, a glass eye, and a kettle of boiling soup.
Hello? Can you hear me?
Barely. Can you speak up, please?
Oh, ok. I have a soft voice and I also have a cold. Is this better?
Ah-ha. Thank you. Like this?
Well. We have two cases here that I want to discuss with you.
Yes. Which two?
Well. The first. We have someone here who, while working in the kitchen, fell in a large kettle of boiling soup.
