The sculpture garden that composes Ecoismi is a collection of public art works that put forth a collective call-and-response to environment and sustainability. Set on the stage of the Natural Park of the Island Borromeo in Cassano d’Adda in Milan, the works – all of which are erected from natural, recycled, or recovered materials – from various artists tell a narrative of awareness and urban ecology, and exemplify a new type of installation art. For example, Unwind by Päivi Raivio is a trail over 20 meters long of Aeolian harps that towers over its visitors with austerity in form. (Compare this, for example, with the extravagance of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s The Gates, 2005 in Central Park.) Similarly, Blackout by Ada Kobusiewicz harnesses the power of the sun to cast its message in shadow, and consequently draws attention to climate change. While the works themselves can be enjoyed in their own right, the true artistry is the achievement of creative display through environmental consciousness and the incorporation of its broader purpose. Could Ecoismi be a precursor to a sort of eco-ism? I’d be convinced.
