Christina Krys Huber's painting S~e~e~d is installed between the trees at the back of the swimming pool's green area. The semi-transparent surface shows elements such as water, a butterfly and eyes looking into the surrounding vegetation. When viewing the work, the painting blends with the leaves of the trees behind it. The projections of the sun and the movements of the wind make the artwork seem almost like a (digital) canvas whose motifs are constantly changing depending on nature. The butterfly symbolises the soul and metamorphosis in various belief systems. It stands for diverse transformation processes both in nature and within queer identities. S~e~e~d invites you to linger under its protection and watch the gentle play of sunlight and shadow unfold on its surface.
