FprBuro Communications Agency proudly presents Natalia Kapchuk, a contemporary artist and philanthropist, as a guest speaker for the Mastermind & Academia Conference. The conference is co-hosted by the Better World Fund and the Université Paris-Saclay as a part of the France Pavilion for Expo 2020 Dubai, scheduled for 25th to 26th March 2022.
Natalia Kapchuk is an artist, philanthropist, and ambassador for The Better World Fund and The Parliamentary Society of Arts, Fashion, and Sports (UK). She not only showcases the many problems afflicting our planet through her creative work but also raises awareness by using her voice to amplify and communicate her eco-oriented artworks' thoughts and messages.
The conference aimed to address the critical need to protect our planet, primarily the conservation of our magnificent oceans. Influential figures and experts in the field of science and ecology shared their perspectives on a range of topics, including anthropogenic impacts, their effects on the environment, and the actions we need to take to reverse the enormous damage already done.
Natalia Kapchuk's captivating artworks, particularly her latest eco-oriented project, The Lost Planet, convey her vast environmental knowledge obtained through extensive research. Nearly half of the artworks from the series revolve around the subject of the ocean and the catastrophic consequences of plastic pollution. For instance, GPGP. Fragment No9820, the most extensive piece from The Lost Planet, is a large-scale mixed-media installation composed of reclaimed plastic waste and other harmful debris retrieved from our waterways.
During her speech, Natalia Kapchuk highlighted the grave issue of plastic pollution and its impact on future generations, passionately urging all participants to take action. She concluded by expressing gratitude to all those present and called upon other creatives to continue utilizing their talents and voices to bring about much-needed change in the world.
