Photoclimat, in its first edition, exhibits exceptional ecological projects and raises awareness on current environmental issues.
30 international artists are involved in this brilliant festival that lasts a month starting this week. One emblematic project that resonates with all cultures from all over the world is the Maskbook project. Created by the Art of Change 21 association, this work of art is surely an eye-catching since it shares a link between the Covid pandemic and climate change. An image that provokes angst and apprehension can also raise awareness on the draining consequences of the current environmental issues.
The power of the Mask:
This open-air Mask gallery is set on the banks of the Seine in Paris, a strategic go-to place of hundreds of locals and tourists. You may notice that each mask-creation is unique and personal, made from recycled materials which undoubtedly speaks to and touches every person that lays eyes on it. It becomes clear now that the idea of this ecological portrait is to divert this anxiogenic piece of fabric into something optimistic, a beacon of hope to hold onto in these hard times we live in.
