The Embassy of Colombia in Ireland launches today the installation UNIBIRDS by the Colombian visual artists MA+CH, available from 2nd to 5th November.
The Embassy of Colombia in Ireland presents the outdoor installation UNIBIRDS to showcase Colombia’s biodiversity which will screen on the façade of the Palace Street Building to communicate the message of preserving the natural wealth in times of climate change.
UNIBIRDS by MA + CH Studio is a visual revelation of our environment, a connection of nature and human fantasy through birds. The result of a collaboration with the Von Humboldt Institute repository of birds in Colombia, they present birds as messengers of new habits, values and current challenges to the environment. The installation takes inspiration in field recordings combined with generated images allowing to create a sensory experience of high impact.
MA + CH Studio is a collaboration between multidisciplinary artist Sergio Mantilla and industrial designer and artist Miguel Chaparro. Together they have created audio-visual experiences and immersive installations through aesthetic research that arise from relating, mixing, deconstructing, abstracting and configuring themes such as nature, technology, fiction, science and cosmogony.
The installation by MA+CH Studio will be presented to coincide with the first week UN Climate Change Conference COP26 being held in Glasgow. The launching event on 2nd November at 6.30pm in City Hall will include the A/V live set ORGANICA based on soundscapes and electronic sounds constructed digitally and analogically that communicate in real time with a play of light and video to create an immersive experience.
