A steel sculpture as a permanent warning sign
Hands for Future is a eco-social art project dedicated to young folks of the Fridays for Future movement. To honor them and their work, we will build a monument, an active memorial: a six-meter-high steel sculpture consisting of 6000 individual children's handprints. These are collected by young people around the world on the Fridays for Future protests and assembled into a mirrored steel globe.
The Hands for Future sculpture should forever remind politicians, passerby and citizens of how important the Fridays for Future movement is. Each hand of the sculpture should symbolize the mirror that the children hold up to us. The sculpture serves as a confrontational memorial as well as motivation to leave a sustainable ecological footprint.
This project was conceived by the artist Isabelle Tellié and will be realized with a Berlin team and with the support of the House of Democracy, as well as other alliance partners. In mid-2020, the sculpture Hands for Future will be completed and unveiled in Berlin.
Naturally, the sculpture will consist exclusively of sustainable and CO2 neutral materials!
To finance the the project a crowdfunding campaign on www.betterplace.org will start on 17.12.2019.
