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.
Only, currently, this material is a big problem for the environment. It is resistant to degradation and if not recycled it is in nature for an indefinite time. The Oceans, where most of the unrecycled plastics go, already have a very high level of pollution. There are more and more animals appearing dead because they ingest plastics or because they are trapped in the remnants of nets and other objects lying in the sea.
The Solution: Decrease the use of products in plastics: stop using straws, cups, plates, bags and many other products made with this material. And put ALL The plastic we use in Ecoponto Yellow. Thus, it will be recycled, transformed into other products such as clothing, toys and packaging. The Oceans are cleaner and the animals do not suffer so much from this pollution. Much better, don't you think?

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
