BLOOP International Proactive Art Festival delivers a guerrilla installation for its 2017 edition dedicated CHANGES. This installation is a new contribution to the OpenAir.Gallery, the Festival`s long term project to change the urban landscapes of an entire island.
It is made by Pineapple Crocodile and floral artist Montse Nadal, produced by Biokip Labs. This 5m x 50m painting is made purely by organic material on the island: salt, charcoal and flowers. Uniting nature and arts in an enchanting context, Dalt Vila of Ibiza, UNESCO registered human heritage.
The guerrilla installation was made in day and due to the nature of the materials, ephemeral and lasted only two days. The original message written in charcoal is a quote by Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius “The Universe is Change, our life is what our thoughts make it”, illustrating the Festival`s 2017 theme.
This massive intervention was made possible by Pineapple Crocodile`s creativity, and the technical coordination by Montse Nadal, using Biokip Labs` logistics and production.
