Over Flow is an installation of the Japanese artist Tadeshi Kawamata that is on exhibition at the Oval Gallery of Maat.
It's an exhibition that deserves to be visited by children because of the impact it causes. The instalation consists of plastic waste and abandoned boats that were collected on the coast of Portugal during beach cleaning campaigns. There are many debris found on our coast and serves as a warning for the massive pollution that exists in the oceans.
At the exhibition, which represents an ecological catastrophe (for now) imaginary, we managed to experience the sensation of having been swallowed by debris and waste, as if we were submerged in garbage. An alert to the amount of garbage in the oceans and the consequences of uncontrolled plastic production and consumption.
An exhibition to see and feel until April 1, 2019.
Have you ever wondered how many times you use plastic objects in one day? Do an experiment: peek at the bags your parents bring from the supermarket and count how many products come packaged in plastic. That'S a lot of!!! And It's like this all over the world. The fact that it is malleable, light and transparent has made plastic a very useful material and, therefore, very common in people's daily life.
Take advantage of the Maat and also visit the Central Tejo. Both buildings of the EDP Foundation have exhibitions, workshops and workshops dedicated to families and children. You can get to know everything here
Do not fail to climb to the rooftop on the top of the Maat. The view is wonderful! and enjoy playing by the riverside in one of the nicest areas of Lisbon. A perfect program for a well-spent afternoon for children!
It's going to be a good day!
