Sculptural installation 
Wood and paint 
14 x 4m 

Based on the "Water Lilies" by Claude Monet (1914-1928), the installation seeks to rescue a topography of the depth, a place of fear: there where the immeasurable is only sustained on the surface by pure points of light -like lilies -, which float in a vacuum/full. This piece is a counterpart to the installation BLACK SPIRIT-CANCER, 2013 done in the woods of northern Scotland during an artist residency.
In astronomy, the intersection between the vertical of the observer and the celestial sphere is called nadir (from Arabic ندير nadir or نظير nathir, "opposite"). In the opposite direction is the zenith.
By extension, nadir is also used to refer to the lowest point or moment of greatest adversity of a process. In oncology it is used to refer to the moment of activation of chemotherapy drugs.
