For the second year, the UK branch of the WWF (world wildlife fund) creates ‘pandamonium’ in london’s hyde park, inviting renowned artists, architects, and designers to develop wearable sculptures and performances to raise awareness of WWF’s work and of contemporary environmental issues.
Architect zaha hadid, turner prize-winning artist grayson perry, and fashion director nicola formichetti are among the 21 artists curated by artwise to develop a piece for ‘pandamonium 2012’. many of the wearable sculptures are composed of materials that explicitly reference a variety of environmental concerns: plastic bottles covered in newspaper papier-maché, intricately folded recycled paper, feathers, and rubber, among the examples. the performances range from interactive shows to musical performances.
