She cuts and polishes aluminum tubing, changing it from simple metal into bright, gestural surfaces that reflect light.

Formed of stacked, horizontal slabs of stone, Vaadia's figures recall the construction of walls or ancient figures dug up from an archaeological site.

On a median between the street and the water, the installations were more diverse. Four large works by Hans Van de Bovenkamp framed the site, from the large steel Red Trunk to Sagg Portal #6, a grand, Baroquestyle frame. …
