More information
Three distinctive moulds that recall the shape of pools have been used to form the six sculptures displayed in the exhibition. Instead of water sand replaces what would normally fill the pools, thus creating the soft hills and depressions that have turned what would be pools into islands. The installation explores the effect such objects have on the landscape by provocatively contrasting simulated artificiality with an idealized nature. 'Calderas' is a geological term describing a large volcanic crater that fills with water after the volcanic lava has cooled. (All images: Sebastian Stadler)
