Interview with Polar Ice Bear Sculpture Artist Mark Coreth

While walking around in copenhagen last night between re:think locations I noticed that the Ice Bear was being boxed up. It’s below O Degrees now so it’s stopped dripping, but at it’s last stage of melt, It was still very effective. Here is an interview with Artist Mark Coreth

‘I realised that I had to bring the problem of climate change on this extraordinarily beautiful environment back to the world,’ he says. ‘To do that I created this idea of making a bronze skeleton which I was going to sink into a huge block of ice and therefore the Ice Bear Project was born.’
