Time after Time (2019)
This sculpture consists of 1271 coins glued together, corresponding with the amount of sober days Thomasse had since he stopped drinking. The plastic coins bear a strong physical resemblance to average drink tokens, but are inspired by the coins Alcoholic Anonymous hands out. On the front of the coins, the goal is imprinted: serenity. On the back, it says time after time. The two concepts are connected by their meaning. The act of heavy drinking is a repetition, and if you quit doing that, you reach serenity. Still, even constant serenity can be boring.
