Harald Klingelhöller

For Beaufort03 the German artist Harald Klingelhöller designed a wall of aluminium, to which a cabinet was attached. By polishing the aluminium the artist wanted to achieve a soft mirror effect, contrasting sharply with the rough structure of the back side. The location where the work was installed is important for the meaning; the reflection of movements in the surrounding space is an inherent part of the work. Das Meer bei Ebbe geträumt (The sea, dreamt of in low tide) was purchased by the city of Ostend and can be admired at its original location.
