In Front of St. Petersburg Winter Palace in Russia. Unfortunately in the country no one wanted to participate in our intervention. The law in the country led by Vladimir Putin, prohibits any artistic protest or intervention linked to Human Rights and the Environment.
We installed an inflatable doll that metaphorically symbolizes the planet in St. Petersburg / Russia, Reykjavik / Iceland, Venice / Italy, Narsarsuaq / Greenland and Amsterdam in the Netherlands. The question we asked people was “What do you do for Mr. Planet, how is your relationship with him?”
Some watched, pounding, made photos, assaulted, surrounded him and hugged him … But the most common sense to the situation of the planet is still indifference … However, some give you love, surround and protect. If the planet were a person, would he be happy?
