In Preservation, Drebusch has made jam from fruits that grew in Bonn, Germany, but on the grounds of the embassies of Iraq, Iran and Saudi Arabia, which legally remain the territory of those individual countries. By contrasting the fact that all the fruits grew on the soil of one location, the work refers back to Middle Eastern grounds.
