“Where the Tides Ebb and Flow” was first introduced in 2008 as part of the Netherlands’ Kielzog Land Art Festival and has since been displayed in other parts of the world. The installation was his first artwork of many created on the theme of climate change. “These more or less submerged sculptures represent people who are already sinking into the sea or that will soon threaten to be,” says Marzorati.

The metallic silvery blue busts are made from silicone molds and resins, and are attached to the lakebed by metal fasteners. The site-specific installation at Montsouris Park comprises over 25 sculptures arranged in an arc. “Where the Tides Ebb and Flow” will be displayed at the park from October 10 to December 15, 2015.
