Title:
Pour la biodiversité

Author:
Cedric Weizsacker

Description:
The artwork "pour la biodiversité" is painted on an old 60x40cm parking sign with acrylic paint and spray paint. The artwork focuses on the decreasing rate of biodiversity in Germany (and other countries) due to monoculturalism. By using a parking sign as medium, it critisices the german mandatory to build parking spots when you want to build a new house. This mandatory encourages the purchases of new cars and negatively influences our environment. With the artwork propose to introduce a biodiversity mandatory which forces you to build up spaces for different types of plants, flowers and animals instead of building more and more parking spots. In some federal states of Germany there are laws that force you to build up "green areas", but this often ends up in monocultures of ivy or grass areas which dont help the biodiversity in our environment. We need a minimal number of species and area mandatory replacing the parking spot mandatory to safe our trees and bees... there has to be biodiversity! Art is the speaker of the people. We express what we feel or think via different artistic mediums. If we want to change something, then art can be an emotional trigger to caralyze change. In the case of my artwork I focus on a little building law change which would have drastic impact. Art is our language, we should use it!
