I'm fascinated by their commitment in the world around them, their sophisticated thoughts about nature and art, their imagination and last but not least their desire to learn. I am very surprised by their results, ”said Cheone about his cooperation with the young Helsingorans; Clara, Kiki, Coco, Martin, Laura, Nadia, Caroline, Anders, Josephine, Mads, Scott, Tobias, Anastazia, Cecilie, Rasmus, Alexander og Celine.

Øresund Sea Bream
(Artists: Yodogawa Technique, 2014)
Hideaki Shibata- Kazuya Matsunaga- Yuragi Wakiya
The enormous fish that was sent on a journey round the Oeresunds region was originally created in Elsinore by a group of Japanese artists called ‘Yodogawa Technique’. The group focuses on making art that addresses environmental issues, global changes and especially plastic and micro-plastic in the oceans. In the summer of 2014, Yodogawa Technique and a group of volunteers built the huge fish out of waste. If you look carefully, you will see spare parts from cars, jerry cans, garden furniture, a ski, the base of a Christmas tree, together with a lot of old plastic toys – some even fitted with sound. As Hideaki Shibata and Kazuya Matsunaga from Yodogawa Technique explained: ”We make art out of objects that people no longer want. When viewers look at the waste, they might also think of the story it tells”.
