Drought – Sculpture by Addé 2019

Life on earth relies on water.

All life forms do.

The marine life, of which we still know very little, is facing a serious pollution threat, while land life is confronted with many dangers: overpopulation, natural disasters, deforestation, and massive pollution.

Drought is a “silent” form of catastrophe when clean fresh water is vital for all.

When plants die, insects will come next, as well as animals, from the tiniest to the largest, and, of course, humans.

Water, although being the most ordinary, common, banal, fluid, is vital in the proper sense.

Please do not waste it.

Sécheresse – Sculpture par Addé 2019

La vie sur terre repose sur l’eau.

Toutes les formes de vie le sont.

La vie marine, dont nous savons encore très peu de choses, est confrontée à une grave menace de pollution, tandis que la vie terrestre est confrontée à de nombreux dangers : surpopulation, catastrophes naturelles, déforestation et pollution massive.

La sécheresse est une forme “silencieuse” de catastrophe quand l’eau douce et saine est vitale pour tous.

Lorsque les plantes meurent, les insectes viennent ensuite, tout comme les animaux, du plus petit au plus grand et, bien sûr, les humains.

L’eau, bien qu’elle soit le fluide le plus ordinaire, le plus commun, le plus banal, est vitale au sens propre du terme.

S’il vous plaît, ne la gaspillez pas.

    Raison pour laquelle, je privilégie une douche plus qu’un bain.
    Des litres d’eau préservés.

      Chère Yvonne, ceci est une galerie présentant des œuvres, ni un chat, ni une rubrique, merci.

    [Narratives]
    Such a gripping catastrophe, indeed
    Storming in silence
    Right from the ground

    Makes me feel lonely already

      Sad but true. Thank you for your comment!

    I see your blog dips its toes into more than just sculptures and art. We’re at a very dangerous time in humanity right now and we are not moving in the right direction fast enough. Great post.

    P.s. Where do you find most of your art or sculptures?

    • Addé August 3, 2019, 15:42

      A heart felt thank you, Mathew! You are one of those rare persons not looking at the finger pointing at the moon. Might just be tiptoed, but yes, I believe in art as a vehicle, especially in those times of emergency. Then, is your p.s. question about the African pieces? If so, we get them whether from the artists for the contemporary ones, or through fair trade for the ancient ones.

      • Mathew | Blog of the Wolf Boy August 3, 2019, 15:46

        Well, it’s interesting and I appreciate the short write ups you do for each piece. Keep up the good work, and yes, my p.s. was about the African pieces 😊. Thanks for answering.

        • Addé August 3, 2019, 17:43

          You are welcome, and thanked for your cool feed-back! Making art explicit is important (to me) when supposed to carry some sense…

  • Eric Lavergne August 2, 2019, 17:27

    Une magnifique œuvre sur un sujet vraiment effroyable.

    • Addé August 2, 2019, 17:49

      Merci Eric ! Effroyable, certes, mais les monuments aux morts ne sont-ils pas, en définitive, des monuments à la vie ?

  • Amy August 3, 2019, 19:41

    We can afford to waste water! Good message!

    • Addé August 3, 2019, 20:02

      Shouldn’t it be “cannot” ?

      • Amy August 3, 2019, 20:28

        We cannot …. Sorry about the error.
        We need rain badly here!

      • Amy August 3, 2019, 20:56

        Should. We cannot afford…
        Thank you!

    meaningfully expressed!
    i’m grateful the local lake is not
    dried up like it was
    just a few years ago 🙂

    • Addé August 11, 2019, 01:34

      Thank you! Glad your local lake is back to life. Drought is a terrible thing.
