Kōan Jeff Baysa states “the exhibition’s title conjoins the terms Ecocide that conveys the destruction of the natural environment by deliberate or negligent human action and inaction; and Ecosave, the hope that this degradation can be halted or even reversed.
This exhibition addresses just one aspect of the pan-global predicament: ocean plastic pollution. The morbidity and mortality of marine life caused by macroplastics is horrifyingly evinced, and the ubiquitous mounting presence of micro- and nano- plastics in earth’s ecosystems and food chains is disquieting. Artists are ideal activists to create strategies of bringing attention to ocean plastic pollution of all sizes, increasing awareness of the consequences, and promoting measures of drastically reducing the amount of plastics making their way into the environment and humans.
Pervasive in their potential negative effects, nanoplastics remain in the realm of the abstract for they are invisible to the naked eye. Accomplished agents for making the invisible visible and rendering the complex comprehensible, the artists of Ecocide | Ecosave address these conundrums with keen and insightful approaches.“
