“Greenpeace: HEART for the Ocean” Art Exhibit

Greenpeace Southeast Asia’s “HEART for the Ocean” exhibition at the Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre (BACC) offers an educational (and eye-opening) experience about the issue of plastic and other man-made trash ending up in our oceans. Visitors can drop in and view the 3.5-metre tall “Blue Ocean” installation, which resembles a huge aquarium full of trashand debris recovered from local households and five beaches in Thailand. Transparent fishes, with stomachs containing plastic, are also part of the exhibit, as are coral made from garbage.

Created by Prasopsuk “Khru Pom” Lerdviriyapiti, the art installation seeks to build awareness on plastic consumption and its disruption of the marine ecosystem — and hopefully, change the way we use and discard plastic bottles, coffee cups, styrofoam containers and other non-biodegradable items. Visitors can also see “Learn It Yourself”, an exhibition that guides you on how to live a plastic-free life.

Activities on the weekend of 18 & 19 February include DIY workshops, turning old t-shirts into something cool; an auction for recycled bags painted by artists; and a mini concert with instruments made from recycled waste, among other activities.

“HEART for the Ocean” takes place on first floor of BACC, from 14 to 19 February 2017, from 10am to 9pm daily. For more information, please click here.
