Gesture to the acidic pond

White as bleached corals, three silicone casts break the stagnant brownish-yellow water surface in a rectangular basin in the back of the garden. In silhouette and size, they resemble water lilies but, in their centre, the fractal shape of an ammonite winds around itself. A limp and dead image of infinity floating just beneath Henrik Starcke’s bronze sculpture Half-draped, Standing Woman. With a mysterious gaze she looks at the still water surface while holding in her hands a small cone-shaped pile of baking soda, the internet’s favourite cure for acidified ponds.
