For seven exiting days, I have been part of the ISPO Tandem Space team that turns waste of the huge ISPO sports fair in Munich into a unique floating installation. Plastic foil of the ISPO exhibitors was used to stuff old textiles and form cloud shaped objects. During ISPO opening hours, the clouds got covered by the artwork of Adam Hartshorne, MAJILINA, Miguel Panadero Escala, Rafa Moreno-Tapia and me.
Tandem Space is the brainchild of Rafa Moreno-Tapia and Miguel Panadero. The Spanish artists have been realizing recycling art projects with ISPO for three years now, each time collaborating with different artists of different European countries. I met them at Stroke Ltd last October and was happy to be invited to join a process that is perfectly in line with my other work.
I painted and scribbled on some of “my clouds”, on others I used cardboard or paper to create interesting textures. The surface of my favourite piece was made with plastic chords.
The cloud installation is planned to be exhibited once more at Stroke Artfair in May 2016. Finally, the individual pieces will be sold in an auction with the benefits going to Movember Foundation.
