Caroline Delieutraz’s Kamil Crater offers a round trip between heaven and earth of a different kind. The origin of its bas-relief can be dated back to the Google Earth observations conducted by an Italian scientist in 2010, who discovered a meteorite crater in the Egyptian desert. Consisting of several layers of superimposed puzzles, Kamil Crater offers a landscape composed of images from scientific schemes, satellite and amateur photographs which, in a hollowed volume, themselves form a crater. Where these images should bring us precision and guidance, it seems that, on the contrary, they generate confusion in the mixing of genres, like a Babel of which only the artist could present us with a unified image.
