The glacier ice cap is shrinking annually between half a meter and one meter, which means between double and triple the average melting rate in the twentieth century.
The series of pieces "Glacier", created by Isabel Englebert, seeks to raise awareness about the problem of glacier melting. In her active commitment to sustainability, the artist raises this issue from a new place, creating situations that represent reality and invite to act on it.
The pieces are made of alpaca and raw quartz, conceiving an interesting interaction between both materials. On the one hand, the quartz presents characteristics of ice, resembling it in its hardness and luminosity. But on the other hand, the metal, which is cold in nature, is in a state of melting, generating an analogy with the slow transition of glaciers from solid to liquid state.
