Studio Wieki Somers - Thomas Eyck - Vase (1) - Deep Water, gelimiteerde editie van 99
Pays-Bas - Post 2000 - Résine/Polyester

Deepwater is a narrow, rectangular vase that makes the impression of being filled with water and oil. Human activity disturbs the natural balance between oil and water, sometimes resulting in an environmental disaster like with the Deepwater Horizon oil drilling platform in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. Oil floats on water so that the vase is divided in two: one half of crystal-clear water and above that a half with nature as distorted by humankind, the oil. Along the middle of the vase runs a glass tube in which the flower can be placed. 'The flower – or more precisely, nature – seeks its way through the oil towards the clean water', in Somers' words.

Numbered and signed edition of 99 pieces.

Works by Studio Wieki Somers (Wieki Somers & Dylan van den Berg) are part of various museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Centre Pompidou in Paris, Victoria & Albert Museum in London, and the Boijmans van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam.
