SAO PAULO.- The Tieté river, which crosses the Brazilian city of Sao aulo and which suffers great contamination, has seen its image revitalized thanks to an artistic makeover consisting of 20 enormous and colorful plastic bottles installed at the shore.
This river, which in the past served as the base for an economic push, does not live its best moment due to the pollution. The river does not carry as much water and is overlooked by most people.
The installation was made by Eduardo Srur and it will be on view until May 25. The installation is part of the Quase líquido (Almost Liquid) exhibit which opened on wednesday at a cultural center that a finance company has in Sao Paulo.
The exhibit gathers 22 works of art made by 14 artists and is centered around the themes of social exclusion, the river pollution and insecurity.
