The Aerocene Foundation assisted by the fundamental contribution of the artist Tomás Saraceno presented a collection of inflatable structures called “Museo Aero Solar”.
Aerocene is an era to live and breathe in; a stateless state, both tethered and free floating; a name for change. Aerocene is an era free from borders and fossil fuels, a common imaginary towards an ethical re-alliance with the environment, the planet and the cosmic/web of life to emerge beyond Anthropocentrism. It is an invitation to change our most harmful attitudes through divergent modes of being to assure an atmosphere of ecological sensitivity and the very possibility of cleaner, brighter futures.
This year’s theme focuses on the reuse of materials, especially plastic that would otherwise end up in landfills or in our beautiful seas. A problem that we all have to face, in fact anyone can build an “Museo Aero Solar” using the set of instructions accessible through this site.
“Museo Aero Solar”, begun in 2007, is an open and growing collection of floating museums built by communities around the world. Reused plastic bags are cut, glued and joined together to create canvases on which personal stories are drawn and written.
An open invitation to everyone to reduce, reuse and recycle, transforming something we will surely have thrown away into an art object. The installation was collectively created by approximately 200 members of the “Aerocene” community.
Here are all the photos of “Museo Aero Solar” for Venice Biennale 2021.
