This summer the whole crew had the chance to paint in a really cool
location: the former Torino zoo, right downtown next to the Po river,
and abandoned since 1987. For the past couple of years Border Land
Association has been giving life back to the Park: a unique chance to
create site-specific artwork, creating dialogue with the shattered
remains of an open-air prison
The message conveyed by this piece is clear enough: time
is running out and the Earth, as well as ourselves, needs a rapid
change of attitude.
The two pictures are taken from opposite
viewpoints surrounding the piece, as two are the ways of looking at the
problem: the dramatic one, standing in front of our planet being
destroyed by our hands, and the active one, giving a strong message and
advice for a better future.
What better place to represent these ideas than a former bear cage in an ex zoo?
