Goal 14 - Life under water

The Street art for Rights project was born with the intention of bringing art to neighborhoods with difficult contexts on the outskirts of Rome, adopting the 17 Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development of the United Nations and filtering them with the eye of contemporary art. The goal is to give artistic substance to the action plan for people, the planet and prosperity promoted by the UN, bringing the community closer to the various themes and encouraging discussion about the pressing problems of the contemporary era.

In this third edition the artists, selected for their civil commitment as well as for their sign and artistic impact, have created 8 walls in the Settecamini, Ponte Mammolo and San Paolo districts, dedicated to the Global Goals from 10 to 17 of the Agenda 2030. All the artists have returned, each from their own personal point of view, a powerful image of the key concept of sustainable development. Furthermore, all the walls were made using the special paints of the AirLite patent, products that are able to transform polluting agents into salt molecules and start the photosynthesis process.

 Goal 14 - Life under water

Barbara Oizmud has created an insightful reflection on life underwater and the increasing spread of microplastics in the seas. The work on the Ponte Mammolo underground wall is called 'Polline', and is dedicated to aquatic flora and fauna. The artist reasoned about the 14th goal of the UN 2030 Agenda, which aims to 'conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development'. The result of Oizmud's work is a hybrid creature that has ended up in the abyss, the cause and at the same time the cure for a collective man-made wound. Polline is person and animal, it is object and coral. Pollen is a mirror of our society. 
 Obiettivo 14 – Vita sott'acqua

Barbara Oizmud ha realizzato una riflessione capillare sulla vita sott’acqua e sulla sempre più ampia diffusione di microplastiche all’interno dei mari. L’opera sulla parete della metropolitana di Ponte Mammolo si chiama “Polline”, ed è dedicata alla flora e fauna acquatica. L’artista ha ragionato sul 14esimo obiettivo dell’Agenda ONU 2030, che mira a “conservare e utilizzare in modo durevole gli oceani, i mari e le risorse marine per uno sviluppo sostenibile”. Il risultato del lavoro di Oizmud è una creatura ibrida finita negli abissi, causa e al tempo stesso cura di una ferita collettiva generata dall’uomo. Polline è persona e animale, è oggetto e corallo. Polline è uno specchio della nostra società.
