Drowned world: welcome to Europe’s first undersea sculpture museum
Jason deCaires Taylor, artist and naturalist sculptor designed a new kind of exhibition aiming to mix human and sea life. Familiar of underwater creations he creates with this new project the first European underwater museum, at 15 meters under the surface of sea, nearby the coast of Lanzarote.
Part of this exceptional and definitive exhibition is dedicated to modern society, which drove the artist to faithfully reproduce everyday life situations, clothes and daily habits of the “Instagram generation”.
Living with his time, the sculptor also dedicates part of the exhibition to the desperate travel of refugees fleeing overseas toward Europe. The “Raft of Lampedusa” so incarnates a modern “Raft of the Medusa”
Thought-provoking and intending to force visitors to re-examine the sea to change their relation to it, the artists hopes to arouse among visitors empathy and thinking due to the fact the portray themselves into these sculpture. Thus, he aims to create new places of life for species like corals and rare fishes
However, this thematic of introspection driven by recognition also fits the modern relation of the European society to the massive influx of refugees coming everyday to Europe.
