Marine litter exhibition "Art from the Sea from Skeleton Sea"

May 22 2018 @ 10:00 AM - June 10 2018 @ 6:00 PM

The art exhibition is an original work of two plastic artists and surfers, the German Xandi Kreuzeder and the Portuguese João Parrinha, who build sculptures from marine litter collected from beaches all around the world.


Plastics, hooks, ropes and metal objects gain a new life in large art installations that have already toured the world and now settle at the Pavilion of Knowledge – Ciência Viva, with free entry, between the 22nd of May and the 10th of June. This exhibition is part of the European Project Sea Change (H2020), which aimed at an initiative for direct and sustainable actions that promote a healthy ocean.

Working exclusively with wreckage, scrap and any other trash found on their trips to the beach, the artists create works that express a strong message about their common cause of "keeping the ocean clean!"

Harnessing the Power of People to Fight Ocean Trash

The International Coastal Cleanup began more than 30 years ago, when communities rallied together with the common goal of collecting and documenting the trash littering their coastline. The movement was catalyzed by the passion and spirit of two committed individuals. Back in 1986, Linda Maraniss moved to Texas from Washington, DC, where she had been working for Ocean Conservancy.
