Choisi – one at a time hosts the site-specific installation Salt by Esther Mathis.
Through the installation, the artist put into practice the instructions depicted in her book Salt Manual, published by Artphilein Editions. It is a work-in-progress, available for visits from the beginning of July.
Salt is an installation consisting of PET bottles, wool, water and salt. The actual work is being created in the exhibition space. It is the recording of a process. A kind of salt machine, which consists of a vertical pillar of salt and an underlying ground drawing. The traces of many influences (such as dust or moisture) are clearly recognizable from the salt crystals. The interaction of the salt and the external influences ultimately form the work – a unique.
