ART Plastic Madonna - a project exploring the issue of plastic pollution by artist Matteo BERTOLIO c/o VISUALEYES ARTISTS

20.09.2023 • The concept behind this artistic endeavor by Matteo BERTOLIO c/o VISUALEYES ARTISTS revolves around drawing attention to the detrimental impact of plastic pollution on our planet and its oceans.

In collaboration with Carolina Mazzolari, an artist and performer based in London, Matteo drew inspiration from the iconic statue of the CRISTO VELATO located within the Chapel San Severo in Naples. This juxtaposition allowed them to explore a profound transformation, symbolizing the shift from the enduring beauty of marble to the ubiquity of plastic pollution.

Their work was showcased during Plastic Free Day in Italy in March 2023, gaining visibility across various social media platforms and events. It serves as a visual testament to the stark contrast between the everlasting nature of marble and the enduring...
