Retart Skate Remade Project 2012
This year Retart has organised an exceptional art project combining visual art and skateboarding. The project consists of transforming a series of used skateboards into valuable works of art. Eighteen skateboarders from Slovakia and Czech Republic donated their skateboards that were afterwards shaped and polished and distributed amongst eighteen artists who converted them into artworks. This way Retart has turned used skateboards into artefacts with double identities, reflecting the creative energy of both artists and riders.
