The magnificent Palazzo Vecchio is currently the setting for Life Guard Aqua (2019), one of four figurative sculptures that refer to ecological emergency, and are the personifications of the elements Air, Earth, Fire and Water, common to all western and eastern cosmogonies. . The anonymous Life Guard figure drags a stretcher bed laden with symbolic objects. In their solitary striding, the bodies project an image of alertness and emergency. . ‪#lifeguards #sculpture #figurativesculpture #sustainability #air #water #fire #palazzovecchio ‬#sustainablethinking #MuseoFerragamo #museonovecento #novecento #lucyjorgeorta #studioortalesmoulins #lucyorta #fresco #lifeguard

‘Sustainable Thinking’ is an exhibition which explores the need for a holistic approach to sustainability where anthropocentrism no longer jeopardizes the preservation of resources and the planet’s ecological balance. It champions the human ability to satisfy the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs (1987 Brundtland Report). We must be capable of ensuring in the future a quality of life that is not inferior to the current one - a global challenge, which can only be faced by means of profound actions from all fronts, including from the arts. . . On view in three museums across Florence you will find our sculptures that resonate with themes ranging from the quality of water and air, to the preservation of our natural resources. OrtaWater Fluvial Interval (2005) is on exhibition @museonovecento April 11 to July 4, 2019. ‬Originally commissioned by @bevilacqualamasa and @boijmans for the @venice.art.biennale 2005. . . #lucyjorgeorta #studioorta #water #ortawater #canoe #sculpture #sustainablethinking #studioortalesmoulins

Nexus Architecture, 1997 The workers overalls are attached via channels and zippers creating linear assemblages thar defy classification by the usual social markers and give form to the social not the individual body.

Deeply saddened to hear of the death of Okwui Enwezor. Thanks to his Jo’burg Biennale and curator Jen Budney we created one of our most moving workshops in the Worker’s Library with a group of women at the Usindiso shelter - Nexus Architecture, 1997. The 2nd Johannesburg Biennale ‘Trade Routes: History and Geography’ brought poignant migrant workers’ voices into the public sphere and beyond the beautiful nexus suits we made together, it brought forth the possibility of solidarity in a fractured environment were solidarity can be difficult to muster and maintain.

Lucy’s collective wear reminds me of collective body practices which exist in the world of survival. The survival of most animals depends on running with the pack. The concept of the pack is linked to animality. Lucy’s collective wear represents a denunciation of man’s return to the pack. At a time when we are told that men are free, emancipated, totally autonomous, she tells us that, on the contrary, there is a threat and that man is regrouping. We refer to this new phenomenon in terms of gangs, new tribes, commandos. Paul Virilio #paulvirilio . Nexus Architecture Intervention Berlin, 1998 #nexusarchitecture #march #climatemarch #berlinwall

Fabulae Romanae, Tunneler (2012). In the film Fabulae Romanae our mythological characters interrogate social, anthropological and philosophical themes questioning art’s critical force in recounting and addressing the emergencies of contemporary living. They are spirits of the past and present, these contemporary sentinels silently interact with the city of Rome and its landscape through the poetic verse by eco-poet Mario Petrucci. The Tunneler and the Myth Maker live in the ancient Roman gardens of the Villa Gregoriana.

Can Design Save Us? A question that dominates the exhibition about Victor Papaneks legacy at Vitra Design Museum @vitradesignmuseum curated by Alison J. Clarke & Amelie Klein @amelie.klein .

The Antarctica World Passport project took centre stage at Migration Week in Marrakesh December 2018, to help lobby the international community to make bold commitments to address drivers that compel people flee their homes in the Global Compact on Migration. These promises need to lead to concrete actions for people displaced as a result of extreme weather events. —— Lucy Orta will be in conversation with Prof Walter Kaeolen to talk about the role the arts can play in policy making.

Thank you @diet_prada . In honor of @jw_anderson unblocking us, we give you his SS18 take on British artist Lucy Orta's umbrella skirt from her 1995 'Identity + Refuge' workshop series. One of many pieces created in collaboration with the help of fashion students and the residents of the Cité de Refuge (French Salvation Army homeless shelter in Paris), the original piece was created from a 1950s umbrella from the shop. Does Jonathan get a pass for turning art into fashion, or is this a straight up rip? • #jwanderson #jonathananderson #lvmh #loewe #lucyorta #artist #designer #british #britishartist #london #lfw #londonfashion #salvationarmy #umbrella #skirt #wiwt #ootd #khaki #stripes #paisley #umbrella #citederefuge #lecorbusier #upcycle #socialpractice #upcycledclothing #dietprada Repost from #ipreview via @preview.app

last days to see the “Victor Papanek: The Politics of Design" exhibition @vitradesignmuseum In the show you can find a selection of contemporary works that transport Papanek’s socially and ecologically oriented approach to design into the 21st century. included is our Antarctica flag. “For artists Lucy + Jorge Orta, the continent Antarctica symbolizes utopia: a nationless territory whose extremes enable a culture of sharing, freedom of research, and collaboration. In a seminal trip to the Antarctic in 2007, the artist duo raised the Antarctica Flag – a kaleidoscope of different nations in tribute to the 1959 Antarctic Treaty which established the continent as a protected ecosystem#.

Bottle Rack (2011) revisits Marcel Duchamp's iconic Bottlerack (1914), one of the most famous ready-made works by the artist. Duchamp's original intention was to elevate a banal found object to the status of an artwork; we have turned it back into a functional one. Here the glass bottles inscribed with OrtaWater Venice and OrtaWater Rotterdam, serve as recipients for water purified in the two cities @venice.art.biennale @boijmans 💦The life-saver at the base of the bottle rack references an emergency situation, the access to drinking water around the world. #duchamp #marcelduchamp

OrtaWater MIU (2005) One angle of our water research is to imagine low-cost water purification devices enabling filthy water to be pumped and filtered directly from local sources.💧Polluted waters that have been purified and distributed include the Venice's Canal Grande for the Venice Biennale (2005); at the Boijmans Museum Rotterdam, the Emmersingel canal (2006) the Hang Pu River for the Shanghai Biennale (2012), and the Canal de l'Orcq in Paris for our solo at La Villette (2014). 💧💦 Fully functioning water purification devices are incorporated into the sculptures and linked by a network of pipes, visitors to the exhibitions can simply turn on the taps integrated into each sculpture, take a drink of the clean water, or purchase an OrtaWater bottled edition to take home. 💧 . #lifejacket #piaggio #sculpture #functionalart @boijmans @venice.art.biennale @powerstationofart @la_villette

OrtaWater MIU (2005) Originally co-commissioned by Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa for the 51st Venice Biennale and the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam (2005-2006) the body of work OrtaWater focuses on the general scarcity of water and issues surrounding the privatization and corporate control effecting access to clean water. Starting from a rigorous analysis of this crucial resource through visual and textual research and collaborative workshops with engineers, we sketch poetic artefacts, sculptures, large-scale installations and artworks that evoke the cycle of gathering, purifying and distributing water. #lucyjorgeorta lucyandjorgeorta #water #piaggio #gloves #ortawater

Amazonia, work in progress @berengostudio The Amazon is a fragile system that, under the pressure of climate change and other human impacts, may reach a tipping point. If the forest system collapsed, it would have dramatic and unpredictable consequences. Modern conservation efforts are increasingly guided by the ‘value’ of nature, in ways that economists, politicians and financial markets understand. This means placing a monetary or tradable value on the public services the environment provides, such as clean air, fresh water, fertile soil, provision of nursery grounds, drought and flood prevention, resistance to erosion and so on. This language of economic currency may be the way to prevent or slow the decline of natural assets or species. Understanding the value of forests is the first step, but there is also a need for sustainable ways for people to live in harmony with their environment. . Check out the forthcoming artist residencies in the Amazon @labverde to contribute further research and knowledge sharing around these issues #environmentalart #amazonia #drawing #labverde #labverde2018
