Title:
Repopulate our streets

Author:
BERO Berenice Garnier

Description:
One alarming consequence of human activity is the disappearance of insects, precious for biodiversity. To bring awareness, I decided to symbolically repopulate one of Berlin's most grey and impersonal neighborhoods with a series of clay insects: bumblebees, beetles, ladybugs, and firebugs. Ceramics and urban hacking, Berlin, 2019-2020 I believe in the power of urban hacking to reach out to a local community and deliver a message because putting art in the urban space makes it accessible to anybody and potentially to a large audience. Small or bigger interventions can all have an impact at different scales: intrigue people, make them think, or even invite the public to participate and be a part of a larger movement such ad a new greening.
