Nick Steur makes installations and performances in which he activates natural elements such as stone, sand and gravity in an original and often poetic manner. In the Drop Sculptures series he gauges the power of water. Drops fall onto a white limestone base with precise regularity. Not only do they splash open into a series of minuscule ephemeral sculptures, the rest of the water also seeps through the base, causing it to slowly discolour and dissolve.

In dialogue with the exhibition Yves Klein. Theatre of the Void, this series gets people talking about colour, form, the transience of a body and the eternity of its intangible traces.
