KATJA PATERNOSTER - BELOW SURFACE
BELOW SURFACE (2021), Slovenia
The light installation Below Surface reaches into the depths of the waters and tries to revive the world down there. The illumination of a fragile wire mesh structure sketches a hologram-looking image of a mysterious deep-sea creature. This floating sculpture above the fountain gives the impression that it has just risen from it.
The presence of a giant squid, this rarely-seen inhabitant of deep waters, spreads a respectful awareness of nature and the waters that we must keep clean for their inhabitants.
