Making of //
For a while I wanted to create a non-profit work in tribute to refugees.
So when recently I was invited in an urban art festival called "mister freeze" in Toulouse, i took the occasion to build and then left a 5m high recycled plastic sculpture on a factory roof, I named it "SANTA EUROPA".
Under iconic and feminine lines, this installation represents europe and its contradictions facing the drama of refugees families who try to reach her everyday risking their lives.
Europe expresses to great media reinforcement solidarity towards migrants and at the same time hastens to build fences on its borders that prevent them from reaching it ..
Many thanks to all those who helped me make installation possible :)
