A new work in Dublin by Canvaz.
Dublin filmmaker Trev Whelan writes:
Here is a piece I had the pleasure of making with a great crew in Berlin. It was inspiring to discover and work with an artist like [Portugal-born] Bordalo Segundo [known as Bordalo II] creating this stunning installation “Froelicher Tucan” as part of the ‘Trash Animal’ series.
Many of Bordalo II’s materials are scavenged from scrap yards, abandoned factories and other urban wastelands. and puts a literal face on our growing mountains of waste, As he says himself: “The idea is to depict nature itself — in this case, animals — out of materials that are responsible for its destruction.” Check out his work here
