Coral reefs capture more carbon dioxide than Earth’s forests, so it’s urgent to protect and replant coral reefs to balance Earth’s temperature and biosphere.
The Pristine Blue exhibition will have it's premier on the 8th of June in ROVE - 1st floor Hotel Le Consulat, in Praça Luís de Camões 22, Lisbon, and will be on display at the Oceans Conference in Lisbon.
Pristine Blue is an exhibition of the (R)HOPE project, and it's included in the side events of the Ocean Conference that will take place in Lisbon between the 27th of June and the 1st of July. It is the result of a partnership between the Associação Surf Social Wave and the artist Lizzy.
This exhibition, made up of pieces created with ropes and wasted fishing cages collected on the beach, aims to symbolize the degradation of marine biodiversity resulting from the impact of intensive fisheries. Pieces that tells a story.
This set of pieces were created by Lisa Marques, known as Lizzy.
Lisa is a surfer, an artist and has been working in the field of environmental activism as a volunteer at the Surfrider Foundation (since 2011). She is also a speaker at the Surf for Employability Program developed by the Surf Social Wave Association. This program is anchored in surfing.
Surfers can be scientists, writers, artists, entrepreneurs, politicians, journalists, dreamers. But above all they are guardians of the ocean and they want to protect it.
