“Artists can function as the canaries in the mineshaft of our society” - we caught up with Marc Spiegler, Global Director at @ArtBasel, to explore an artwork that has inspired him to think about the pressing issues around global sustainability. He says, "This piece by Tetsumi Kudo was made in 1972, a time where plastics were becoming ever more common, and when people started to realise they were actually completely unperishable. Featuring leaves, a snail, transistors and lightbulbs, the artwork reflects on a way in which natural life and manmade elements are going to be combined in the Post-Anthropocene era. Plastics will outlast us all."
