The Mobile Museum Project: Eco Art in the Name of Civilization

 

Home > Eco Art in the Name of Civilization


The day after the opening ceremony of the United Nations Conference on the National Stadium, an installation art placed on a horse-drawn carriage will set off from the Palace of Culture on a journey through the most visited and the most emblematic places in Warsaw.


 It is a project of the controversial eco-artist Vincent JF Huang, who is an official delegate of Tuvalu to the United Nations Conference held in the capital. During the happening, one could see a turtle and a polar bear by a bull on Wall Street. The exhibit shows the animals sacrificed on the altar of the development of civilization. The artist uses dark humour to raise awareness of the Climate Crisis engulfing particularly the small paradise island of Tuvalu. Scientists are predicting that if the ongoing process of global warming is not stopped, Tuvalu will be the first country to completely disappear under the sea. Huang uses these ‘animal victims’ to point out that, under capitalism’s unlimited pursuit of economic development, Earth’s natural resources have been plundered, leading to effects that will not only devastate the ecosystem of a far-away island such as Tuvalu, but will bring inevitable disasters to the the First World countries too.
The opening of the exhibition and a meeting with the media will be held in the Kulturalna Cafe on November the 12th at 12 o'clock. The mobile museum will set off at 1 p.m. from the Palace of Culture to visit Nowy Swiat, the Royal Castle, the monument to the Little Insurgent, the Warsaw Uprising Museum and the Citadel.
