Eco-Bags exclusively at the Museum of Contemporary Art Skopje
In limited numbers, a selection of cotton bags with a powerful eco-message are available to visitors in the museum’s bookstore.
MSU and OPA aim to raise eco-awareness among their fellow citizens. Every visitor to the museum, who buys a bag like this for a symbolic price, joins the fight against the use of single-use plastic. The work “I worry because you worry” was part of the exhibition “Panic room” or: jump in opinion”, last year, curated by Ljiljana Nedelkovska, and organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Skopje. The project “I care because you care” is a call for joint action. A call for a work of art to leave the museum premises and continue its life outside.
A call – the statement “I have pledged to the MSU and the OPA that I will fight against the use of single-use plastics” has become one’s everyday life. The work consists of ten variants of multiples – cotton bags with printed text: “Brother for brother – cheese without a bag!”, “Don’t shake bags!”, “Don’t give me a bag, we’ll breathe in pm!”, ” I carry every bag I take with my soul!”, “Brother, don’t bag!”, “Sid is dry, air is dry!”, “The devil doesn’t dig or plow, but nylon bags are a stamp!”, “Who gives another a bag, it will fall alone in a bag!”, “Fag, don’t drop bags!”, “The pharmacy bag will crush us!”.
In this project, OPA starts from the conviction that art, in addition to the power to encourage aesthetic experiences, is also a powerful tool in forming public opinion. One of the most urgent topics today is the need for joint contribution and stake in dealing with the environmental disaster.
