Greinaboot

In an alpine landscape, in place of an artificial lake intended for the production of electricity, lies a boat covered with moss. This work is a hymn of praise to a victory of political ecology. It also underlines the transformative power of natural phenomena and the passage of time, as well as symbolizing the starting point of the artist’s career and the evolution of an appropriate way of working. In his quest for simplicity, for an extreme reduction, he has streamlined his work to one object, one colour, one material, resulting in a central point where scientific and political issues meet surreal poetry.
