The visual artist Andreco introduces in Venice Climate 04-Sea Level Rise, a project between art and science focused on the consequences of the climatic changes and the rising sea level. Climate 04-Sea Level Rise is the fourth step of the Climate project, which is composed by a series of interventions that took place in different European cities; the project includes three different interventions, specifically conceived and developed for the city of Venice: a big wall painting, an installation and a talk which will analyse climate change under a scientific and artistic point of view.
The mural will be done along the shores of Canal Grande in Fondamenta Santa Lucia, and it will represent an artistic translation of the studies about sea level rise and extreme waves, according to the scientific evidence and estimates provided by research centres involved in the project.
Another thought about the lagoon ecosystem will be represented by the installation, which will host some autochthonous plants underlining the environmental benefits of coastal plants as well as their contribution both in the adaptation and mitigation of climatic changes and in protecting Venice.
The third and last intervention will be an academic conference featuring talks by international scientific researchers and international contemporary art protagonists, with the purpose of bringing the concepts and motivations which inspired the project Climate 04-Sea Level rise to a broader audience while stimulating a public discussion about the causes and the effects of climate changes, a theme which will be crucial both for the city of Venice and the whole planet.
