How many horizons are there? Imagine the surface of all the seas, oceans, rivers, and lakes of this world as a single horizon. The water line marks the boundary between everything that is above and all that lives below. In addition, water compels us to attain a balance, a lasting relationship between our bodies and all the materials we float on. In der TANK, Spanish artist Teresa Solar presents a new group of sculptures featuring animals, images, mythologies, and other elements that share a relationship with water and the sea. How does immersion alter our way of seeing? How does water — or the ether of an art space transformed into fictional water — challenge weight and volume, and colour and position? The work is conceived as a total environment that fills the entire exhibition space.
