LA PISCINA - Bombay Beach Biennale

A Creative Pool project by Marco Walker (United Kingdom)

The collage created out of life-size cutouts is symbolic of the rich history of the town of Bombay Beach and the Salton Sea, which in its heyday was a glamorous Hollywood destination.

Today, due to an environmental catastrophe that polluted the lake, almost overnight the town went from boom to bust. “I was interested in the contrast of the hyperreal, colorful cutouts against the backdrop of this lifeless landscape."
