Venice, October 2013

“The Garbage Patch State by artist Maria Cristina Finucci was opened to the public on 29 May 2013. The installation is set until 24 November 2013 in the main courtyard of the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. It sums up in a simple image what is in fact a very complex phenomenon of islands made of garbage and floating in the middle of the oceans. The idea is inscribed in the framework of Wasteland, a complex art project on which the artist has been working for several months, composed of videos, images, and many other interventions.”
