Artistic display: “The Killer Net”

Artistic display: “The Killer Net” by Adriano Souras

The Killer Net by British artist and social designer Adriano Souras bears witness to a disturbing reality: the world’s oceans of plastic that throw marine ecosystems out of balance and unsettle our collective psyche. Made up of 9 000 abandoned plastic straws, Souras’ installation is presented in the Biosphere’s lobby. 

The work emphasizes the pervasiveness of plastic in the environment. Indeed, the material has become a disconcerting protagonist in our lives, and its role continues to expand insidiously. Embedded in every corner of the environment, it fascinates and alarms.

For Souras, the pursuit of a creative quest is also a call to action. With The Killer Net, he aims to raise awareness of some of today’s most pressing environmental issues. He invites the public to imagine the impact of marine waste and the hyperconsumerism from which it stems.
