A celebrated international artist, Ulgade plays with all kinds of medium: photography, land art, installations using local textiles, carved out soft sculptures that mimic cactus forms and shaman spirits, his talent has no boundary.
Uldage’s passion for the salar has been an on-going adventure for the past 50 years: he believes it is filled with countless spiritual meanings and is an endless, sacred place to be explored. Additionally, Ulgade has nurtured a one-of-a-kind relationship with the Jijira community – the village next to which the lodge is set up - for over 40 years. Whether Uldage invents an endless salt-staircase on the salar, or plays with coloured mirrors to reflect its immensity, the possibilities are infinite and bewildering.
On demand, Gaston organizes art and photography master classes at Kachi. For any guest, it most probably the most thrilling, memorable experience one can live on the salar.
