This years BLOOP International Proactive Art festival Ibiza is dedicated to the theme HOPE. Artist SpY made a massive installation, as big as the sun! The “Sun” installation is a circle in gold, made with golden thermal blankets that are often used for emergencies.
This installation is located on one of the busiest streets of Ibiza Town with tourists from around the world. An interpretation could be that SpY sought to shed light upon the plight of the immigrants who ashore on Europe in search of a brighter future, and the contrast between the two worlds.
This piece is part of the OpenAir.Gallery, a long-term project to change the urban landscapes of an entire island. It truly embodies the festival’s ethos “ART IS FOR EVERYBODY”.
Currently, it continues to grow its collection reaching nearly 30 murals and installations sprinkled across Ibiza island. SpY’s SUN is the fourth contribution this year to BLOOP Festival’s OpenAir.Gallery project.
