Steel rods are twisted and torn to maximal extent under a blow torch, in order to test their "soft skills" with physical means. 

The resulting variations of fragile and delicate objects carry used work gear and older artworks.

The objects are presented in a former power plant, which today, in the post-industrial era, has been turned into a multi-functional building that houses the exhibition halls as well as other event spaces.
