The architecture of the water tank recurs in all of the work of The Swan Collective artist group. The five members inspire one another with their individual techniques, and break apart rigid forms of painting through animation and special effects. In this way a virtual reality is created. The collective extend the ephemeral nature of acrylic paintings featuring hydroelectric power stations and reservoirs by drawing on the versatility of its collective powers and projecting a dynamic interplay of light and shadow onto the painted waterscapes. A pair of 3D glasses enables the visitor to dive into a virtual world and experience intimately the invigorating and yet threatening power of water. The exhibited paper embossments display forms of life which have each in their own way developed an organic method for storing water – cactuses, krakens, primitive animals.
