The greenhouses in southern Spain, where most of the vegetables are for export (including organic), are responsible for 7% of the microplastics in all the world’s seas. (source: BBC)
‘Mar sin plástico’ is a project in which 12 artists from the Netherlands and Spain have used this collected worthless plastic and transformed it into works of art. In the exhibition of the same name at Oyfo, the works of 5 artists are exhibited.
Artist and initiator Karin Hoogesteger talks about the origin and development of ‘Mar sin plástico’.
Robert Roelink is an art nomad and one of the participating artists. Based on the love-hate relationship with plastic, he makes paintings, collages, sculptures, installations and performances with this material.
Robert takes you into his world in which freedom is central, but also his quest in uncovering our culture patterns.
