The Sculpture Unbearable: A copper-polar bear impaled on a 6 meter high graph of human CO2 emissions. First exhibition: COP 21 in Paris.
Autumn has taken over Denmark and at Gallery Galschiot, we are happy to see that many of our plans are going well.
Unbearable exhibited at the University of Paris. We have just confirmed an exhibition of the 5 meter tall polar bear sculpture "Unbearable" at the estimated university in Paris 'Cite Universitaire' during the COP21 Climate Conference in December. It is a splendid place, which houses a UNESCO conference on climate during the same period. We are cooperating with WWF on the project and we hope that the organization's Ambassador His Royal Highness Prince Henrik of Denmark will attend the inauguration of the exhibition.
The office people at Gallery Galschiot are working hard to make head or tail of the grassroots-activities during the climate conference. The reason for this is that we plan to bring a number of sculptures which will be a part of the NGO's alternative climate summit and will be exhibited at the global climate manifestation on November 29 and the demonstration on December 12 in Paris. Amongst the sculptures are climate refugees in bronze and the 6-meter-high "Freedom To Pollute" – The Statue of Liberty, with a smoking torch.
Our recent Crowdfunding fundraising campaign to finance Unbearable project was an overwhelming success. We collected more than 12.000 Euros – thanks to everyone who supported and helped finance the transportation to of the sculpture to Paris.
Galschiot's artwork studio team finally finished modeling the Unbearable-polar bear. It has been lowered into out acid pool in which an ingenious electrolysis process will cover it with a thick layer of copper. The team has now begun making the complicated base and steel graph on which the giant bear is impaled 5 meters above ground, assisted by our engineer Lars Bredahl.
Mystery about Fundamentalism-sculpture by EU Parliament. Through the German Magazine Der Spiegel we have learned that EU's Bureau has rejected Galschiots Fundamentalism-exhibition of fear of a terror attack. This is not a very "Je suis Charlie Hebdo"ish behavior. We still await an official record, but we are very mystified that the EU, which talks about defending freedom of expression, prohibits a peaceful art exhibition. Furthermore they overrule 30 EU parliamentarians claim to express themselves by setting up the Fundamentalism sculpture in order to create a religious dialogue promoting peaceful coexistence between the monotheist religions. So far, EU has postponed the exhibition three times, but the Danish EU parliamentarian Bendt Bendtsen, who is in charge of the 30 parliamentarians, is not that easy to stop and he will continue his work to realize the exhibition.
Have a great autumn!
Lots of fantastic greetings
