VISUALEYES ARTISTS Matteo Bertolio - Plastic Madonna

 

The concept behind this artistic endeavor revolves around drawing attention to the detrimental impact of plastic pollution on our planet and its oceans. In collaboration with Carolina Mazzolari, an artist and performer based in London, Matteo drew inspiration from the iconic statue of the "CRISTO VELATO" located within the Chapel San Severo in Naples. This juxtaposition allowed them to explore a profound transformation, symbolizing the shift from the enduring beauty of marble to the ubiquity of plastic pollution. This transformation is embodied in their creation, referred to as "Polyurethane Woman Crist," a representation that bridges the realm of the sacred, Mother of the sea, while allowing viewers to embrace their individual interpretations without the imposition of a predefined title. Their work was showcased on the occasion of Plastic Free Day in Italy in March 2023, gaining visibility across various social media platforms and events. It serves as a visual testament to the stark contrast between the everlasting nature of marble and the enduring persistence of plastic pollution within our waterways, underscoring the urgent need for environmental awareness and action.
