The work consist of a plain yellow maritime flag. The title refers to the international maritime signal alphabet. Initially the flag was used to indicate a ships quarantine, but eventually the meaning of the flag changed to the opposite - a ship that declares itself free of quarantinable diseases and requests boarding. A cognitive collapse of meaning trying to describe the “cargo” of the exhibition space.
