The artist called for a bean sprout to be planted in an empty bottle marked Tranxene - a strong antidepressant used, for example, in treating alcoholism. Over the course of the exhibition, the sprout grew into a full-sized plant. The work was first shown as part of the exhibition Co z nami teraz będzie? (”What Will Become of Us Now?”) at the Potocka Gallery in Krakow (curated by Joanna Zielińska, 2006). It was documented as a photograph during the show at the Arsenal Gallery in Bialystok when the work was shown as part of the "Depression" exhibition (curated by Magdalena Godlewska, 2007).
