CCP’s Art Installation Gives You A Better Reason To Ditch Plastic
In line with the Earth day, the Cultural Center of the Philippines will once again be displaying the "Dead Whale" Outdoor Installation beginning April 25, 2019 at the CCP Front Lawn to spark conversation on the harmful and deadly effects of plastic pollution.
The art installation first appeared on the shores of Naic, Cavite last May 11, 2017 made in collaboration between a non-governmental environmental organization and Dentsu Jayme Syfu led by Creative Director Biboy Royong. Multiple plastic products were swarming inside the mammal, while a deceased baby whale is found in the middle of all the rubbish. The calf is a representation of the next generation who will face the staggering problem of our polluted seas.
The installation seeks to pose questions on exbihit-goers on where they stand on the issue, and what they are willing to do to address it.
The Cry of the Dead Whale may be viewed at the CCP Front Lawn until May 26, 2019.
