“Remember Nature” – a worldwide call by Gustav Metzger

4 November 2015

A WORLDWIDE CALL BY GUSTAV METZGER FOR A DAY OF ACTION TO REMEMBER NATURE

THIS APPEAL IS FOR THE WIDEST POSSIBLE PARTICIPATION from the WORLD OF THE ARTS

THE AIM IS TO CREATE A MASS MOVEMENT ACROSS THE ARTS to ward off EXTINCTION

“The art, architecture and design world needs to take a stand against the ongoing erasure of species – even where there is little chance of ultimate success. It is our privilege and our duty to be at the forefront of the struggle. There is no choice but to follow the path of ethics into aesthetics. We live in societies suffocating in waste.” Gustav Metzger, 2015.

Our task is to remind people of the richness and complexity in nature; to protect nature as far as we can and by doing so art will enter new territories that are inherently creative, that are primarily for the good of the universe.

What we want to do – what is ahead for us is to bring together the world of the arts – to unite in having a day of art actions covering the entire country. We call those who engage in the arts to participate in a day of mass action, to create a collective artwork to Remember Nature.*

Here is my contribution to the Remember Nature project – a photograph of giant icicles I took in Iceland.
