egschi shell, PD#18244, 2018
lightweight concrete with hollow body modules and reinforcement 13 x 10 x 1 mArt Safiental, Wagrecht - Senkrecht, curator: Johannes HedingerThe Egschisee serves as a reservoir for the Zervreila power plant. In the early summer it is emptied for maintenance. The artist used the lakebed as a natural mold, digging a hole with a excavator which was then reinforced and filled with light concrete. After the drying phase the 20-ton shell was driven to the surface by the force of the water returning from the Rabiusa River and since then it has floated as a usable island object in the Egschisee. The sculpture is secured with a long rope to the bottom of the lake and constantly changes location.
