In the video work “Leftover”, Jakup Ferri is digging a hole in the ground, a deep hole, in which he is going to disappear during the work; others have to help digging, while the mound of the excavated ground grows ever higher. Finally (after about ten long minutes) the artist and helpers start to fill all the soil back into the hole. They shovel without ceasing, apparently to restore the situation to the state in which it existed before starting this useless attempt. But – what surprise! – the excavated hole is too small for the excavations. There is always a bit too much leftover when one makes a trip to the “gorges” of everyone’s own history.
