The installation contains about 25 pairs of stones. Each pair consists of a real stone and a remodelled one. The remodelled stones were made by hand out of clay, to form almost perfect copies, differing only slightly in dimension and appearance from the original.  The title refers to the quote: “Berge versetzen” (moving mountains). Changing the word “versetzen” into “ersetzen”, the meaning becomes “replacing mountains”.
