Maria Cristina Finucci

Maria Cristina Finucci is an artist on the contemporary scene whose highly provocative and visually striking work raises awareness of the current climate emergency. This spectacular monograph is dedicated to Wasteland, a provocative work denouncing the environmental crisis by Maria Cristina Finucci, an Italian artist with a strong international presence. Wasteland is a global work of art. It includes a system of installations and actions developed between 2013 and 2019 in various locations around the world, with the aim of disseminating a series of “clues” on the international scene that provocatively suggest the existence of a “garbage nation,” known as the Garbage Patch State. Finucci’s work explicitly denounces the existence of plastic islands (the Garbage Patches) that contaminate the oceans. The book’s striking photographic images are accompanied by texts by the two editors of the volume, who comment on and interpret Finucci’s work.
