The installation "WhistlePaintVasePigKeyCopy" is based on an antique clay vase from Troy that is modelled on the form of a pig. A few years later a plaster replica of the object becomes the starting point for a new artistic investigation.  By adding new openings, the object can be played like a pipe. The audience is invited to use the modified vase to make a sound that functions as a key to activate the mechanism and open a sliding door. Inside the now accessible room is an apparatus, which is used to produce the plaster copies.
