In this work we see moments of oil procurement and the monotonous recurring movement of the crane. The title of the work refers to a play on words from „pimp“ and „perpetual“ - that is, pimp and the „continuously recurring“. With this work, our attention is drawn to the dependency structures and patterns of the (especially) western world in connection with oil
On a further level of meaning, the artist wants to show the resulting consequences with this work: the black gold we always have negative effects on all of us, be it through climate change, wars or power games on a political level. So it‘s not perpetual motion, but the earth that seems to be rocking.
But, the real main protagonists of this work are ironically the clouds: they are indifferent to what is happening.
