Pinsky’s L’EAU QUI DORT – BREAKING THE SURFACE draws attention to everyday objects that have already moved into oblivion. Now they rise up again from the water causing people to question their attitudes towards waste disposal and lifestyle choices. The artwork was commissioned by COAL and shown at COP 21 in Paris 2015 in the Ourcq Canal. >> >> >>
“Again visible, these bicycles, shopping trolleys, signs and fridges confronted their owners, demonstrating that society’s desire for the new can only be supported by rendering the old invisible.” (Michael Pinsky) >>
