Christian Rebecchi & Pablo Togni from NEVERCREW just returned from the city of Bayonne in France where they presented their latest mural called ‘Tide’.
Facing the Adour river and located at one of the sides of Pont Saint-Esprit, which is connected with the historic relation that Basques had with whales, the duo worked on the idea of shifting, transformation, evolution and movement.
The artists want to recall the human act of compressing nature through exploitation, pollution and physical appropriation of space. The seven whales, at the same time swimming in their element and laying on human ground, are shown in a moment of balance. Between sinking and floating, between collapsing and moving, between depths and surface, between attraction and repulsion, between dirt and clean, in a delicate and specific instant that shows the emergency, but could still permit to choose the direction.
