Swans (Oerol)

- Marco Barotti

At Oerol, Marco Barotti will  present his installation Swans. These artificial swans are partly constructed by recycled materials (such as satellite dishes) and newly added electronic equipment. In this way the Swans form a ballet of unique creatures swimming in a dunes lake. Swans represents the power of mainstream TV and mass media. Brought to life by sound, wind and water, these animals float peacefully in a pond merging perfectly with the nature surrounding them. This image provokes both a sense of revulsion and an intimate feeling of familiarity. The Swans are hacking their natural habitat, while challenging the visitor to reflect on the growing tech waste that ends up in our waters.
