Description

Pascale Marthine Tayou's work suggests a different and correct use of plastic bags, which have become emblematic objects of the contemporary human condition, a symbol of globalization, rampant consumerism, but also of the nomadic lifestyle that increasingly characterizes today's society.

This enormous sculpture is almost 10 meters high, made ​​of thousand coloured plastic bags, and already exposed at the HangarBicocca inMilan, is put at the center of the Museum Hall, which becomes a gathering and meeting place with the intent to open up the museum to the neighborhood.
