Wear the sky – We are the sky

coming soon

We Are The Sky - Wear The Sky is a multidisciplinary art installation which portraits how we are all interconnected by breathing the same air- being surrounded by one sky. The sky is not just above us; also in between us, covering us, almost like we are wearing it. The sky is without borders. How people in the cities forgot to look in the sky, how we have to reconnect with the nature and with nature resources in the right way.
In a (theater, exhibition or other public) space, dyed Washi paper pieces hangs down from the ceiling. When visitors walk through, they encounter seven anthropomorphic silhouettes, covered in sculptural wearables made of Washi paper. Each shape has its own form and unique details, representing various communities in the world. Together, they show how their diversity does not diminish their shared need for air, which is shared, soaked in and moved by the visitors themselves too.
In another space, an experimental movie shows how the silhouettes move and interact with the air they wear, and reveals more of their diverse backgrounds.
