SAVE THE GEISHA!

Virginie Le Scornet, gallerista della Artz 21, mi ha aperto le porte della sua galleria offrendomi la possibilità di incarnare lo spirito dell'esposizione collettiva Fantasia erotica giapponese.

Ho aperto l'esposizione come samurai, indossando una creazione dello svizzero Emmanuel Mottu e l'ho chiusa come Nery Barcelona travestita da geisha, indossando una creazione della casa di moda parigina Kawaiko.

Una campaña en defensa de las especies en vías de extinción

A campaign in defense of endangered species

Nery Barcelona relives an XVIII century japanese tradition interpreting an otoko geisha to alert the population about this environmetal catastrophe. Nery Barcelona faces the city with a concrete purpose: to protect the existence of this endangered creature. Nery launches the campaign Save the Geisha! to arise consciousness on the importance of biological diversity.

Geisha were very numerous and developed during the XVIII and XIX centuries; their numbers are alarmingly decreasing and very few are part of present Japan’s ecosystem. Estimated in 80.000 in the 20's, they diminish to 17.000 in the 80's and today they do not amount to 200, concentrating mainly in Kyoto (their origin place) in the neighbourhood Gion1.

The biodiversity found on Earth today is the product of 3.5 billion years of evolution and is crucial to the survival of our species.
Biodiversity is the measure of the health of biological systems.
Many species have disappeared and others are in the edge of doing so, protect your own health and that of your loved ones, protect this endangered creature, save the geisha!

If you wish to colaborate with the campaign Save the Geisha! please contact Nery Barcelona at 12x12@144barcelona.com

Please contribute to alert about this environmental disaster.
Protect endangered species! Protect Biodiversity!
