Situated in a clearing within an Italian forest, John Grade’s latest installation, Reservoir, appears like a chandelier glistening among the pine trees. Grade studied the Park’s ecosystem, carefully planning the installation in harmony with the surrounding landscape. When rain falls or snow lands the water accumulates within Reservoir’s clear pouches, giving them their droplet-like shape. In doing so, the installation gets heavier and lowers. While in sunny, warm weather it rises back into its original structure as the liquid evaporates. The sculpture rises and falls with precipitation differently each time it rains or snows.
