Originally from Italy, Paola Idrontino is a multidisciplinary artist currently based near Barcelona.
Inspired by the plight facing coral reefs, and wanting to bring light to the serious issue of coral bleaching, she began her largest piece yet; Evanescent. A 2×4 meter textile and mixed-media sculpture which portrays coral bleaching caused by climate change. This video gives you a small glimpse into some of the process behind construction.
Paola is displaying Evanescent at the Maritime Museum in Barcelona.
