The plastic-recycled city

This weekend i visited the Art Dubai galleries at Madinat Jumeirah. I was impressed with the “Extremes Maquettes” by Bodys Isek Kingelez which is now part of Cartier Foundation pour l’art contemporain. 

Back in 1995, the artist used recycled material to build this urban and colorful city of Congo. His works carries a social message, compensating for what reality and society have failed to give the city. 

Enjoy the plastic city!
