Appreciation towards Pezo Von Ellrichshausen for providing the following description:

这是一个为连续播放的视频投影而设计的空间。视频中展示的是Christian Boltanski创作的一件位于阿卡塔玛沙漠中的不朽而脆弱的装置作品。这一雕塑般的建筑由两个同心圆筒和两个如隧道般延伸出来的结构融合而成,其轮廓的不完整性是为了更好地定义出内部景观。

This is a room for a continuous video projection, for the documentation of a monumental but fragile installation made by Christian Boltanski in the Atacama Desert. With two concentric cylinders and two tunnel-like extensions, this sculptural piece is meant to erode its own figure in order to re-enact an inner landscape.

▼建筑主体由两个同心的圆筒构成,the main volume is made of two concentric cylinders


It is a dimly lit, opaque and seamless chamber, rough enough so as to evoke the original distant place where the installation was recorded. The radius of the smallest cylinder is, in fact, defined both by a fine-tuned equipment and by the precise distance of an observer immersed in the projected image. The other cylinder, as a consequence of the reversible path to go from outside to outside, might be read as a leftover of the inner corner in which the recorded landscape is projected.

▼粗糙的质地使人联想到内部影像所呈现的远方,the rough surface evokes the original distant place where the installation was recorded


It is somehow difficult to understand how a small building can contain a massive landscape in its modest entrails. Here, what seems to be a defensive gesture towards the surrounding garden is no other than a haven for the devious and fleeting overlap between reality and fiction.
