SERIES THRU "ZANZIBAR: THE PRISONERS OF POLLUTION"

eLookPortfolio > SERIES THRU "ZANZIBAR: THE PRISONERS OF POLLUTION"

Denouncing the destructive impact of Man's footprint on his peers and on our planet is the alarming testimony that Béatrice Lissague wanted to bring.

For this, she chose to present a walk on this paradise beach of Zanzibar, alas punctuated by waste of all kinds, which sailed tirelessly between the sand and the sea, inexorably destroying Man and Nature.

The series represents an inventory of current and future victims of pollution: men, women, children, fauna and flora and ultimately the entire planet if the behavior does not change!

Everyone and everything become a prisoner of pollution!

To translate this, Beatrice mixed the photographs of the pollutant and polluted playing with materials, colors, light, opacity, transparencies, textures, graphics and reflections. The photographic work was printed on a Fine Art Canvas. The last step was to dialogue with the canvas and give it extra relief by applying paint and various materials, weavings, embroidery ...

The result is a more or less abstract universe, tinged with subtle impressions, giving free rein to interpretation and imagination. Thus, it leads to a complex reflexion on the devastating human imprint in order to encourage everyone's commitment in favor of the protection of the environment.

Everyone at his level should adopt the posture of a proactive and caring guardian of our planet.
