‘La Piscina’ Marco Walkers latest installation art for the 2nd year of the Bombay Beach Biennale which was themed ‘ What the Future used to be’.

The collage created out of life-size cut outs 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. Today, the town feels like a post apocalyptic disaster zone.

“ I was interested by the contrast of the hyper real, colourful cutouts against the back drop of this lifeless landscape. “ – Marco Walker –
