Réservoir

RÉSERVOIR
Installation (various-sized photographic images on paper, repositional photographic pieces, projected still images, tented structure, rocks). new work

Réservoir is an exhibition proposition following an extensive, decade-long study of fluid systems in the Haute-Savoie, France; and part of the artist’s Guide74 work. The proposed installation is made up of multifaceted dynamic parts – some fixed, others mobile. Elements include: groups of images changed intermittently by museum/gallery staff, large-scale projected images arranged as an atmospheric environment, and a central tented structure. The installation acts as an immersive guide that reflects on the interconnected activities of tourism, heritage and conservation and its dependency on mountain water in the fast-disappearing glacial environment of the French Alps.
