Baelo Claudia’ explores how an object relates to the foundation of all landscape: the ground and the sky. A 45 meter long balloon was specifically fabricated for a performative experiment at the archeological site of Baelo Claudia in Spain where the balloon was subsequently released into the sky. From then on, the sculpture appeared abstract in mid-air, no longer related to a specific context on earth. In the air, the sky acted like a blank, or blue, canvas. Moreover, helium gradually expands at higher altitudes, causing the shape of the work to transform from soft to linear geometry. This concluding act transformed into a dynamic abstract image, in which it was difficult to determine whether the object was tiny or enormous.
