Isa Melsheimer's Possibility Of A Ruin VI combines a concrete work, a delicate ceramic and a custom-made plinth. The concrete sculpture depicts a view of a Brutalist building, architect John Madin’s Birmingham Central Library in Paradise Circus in Birmingham, England. The artist acts as archeologist of often forgotten or neglected buildings, recreating their distinctive shapes both from her study and from her vivid re-imagining of the forms and the spirit of the structures.
