Former 2nd harbor entrance, Wilhelmshaven


Jeewi Lee presents an ephemeral installation inspired by Land Art, in which water, mudflats and clouds play the main role, as part of the exhibition "By the Sea" (Kunsthalle Wilhelmshaven), in the former 2nd harbor entrance. With a minimalist and temporary intervention in nature, the artist creates a circular form that exists for only one tidal cycle: Installed in the tidal flats in the early morning hours at low tide, it submerges at high tide (high tide 11:13) to become visible again as the water recedes (low tide 17:30). The effect of the work - as a hole, mirror or window to the sky - is largely determined by wind, weather and sunlight.
