Giant Red Squirrel

Irish Filmmakers Trevor Whelan, Rua Meegan and producer Glen Collins, are excited to present Portuguese environmental artist Artur Bordalo's aka Bordalo II Dublin installation, 'Red Squirrel' on the Workshop Gastropub, Georges Quay, Dublin, Ireland. 

We have been filming Bordalo internationally for over two years and fought very hard to bring such an incredible artist to share his work with Dublin. The construction of Bordalo’s Irish installation was filmed over five days for an Irish Film Board funded documentary 'Bordalo II A life of waste' which will premiere this year.

The purpose of our documentary is to illustrate the motivation and creativity behind the career of trash art sculptor Artur Bordalo, with the intention of raising a global awareness about the environmental consequences of our wasteful society and entertaining them through the artistry and ingenuity captured in Bordalo’s works.

Bordalo's effort to make this piece was inspiring to be around. It was an incredible week and we could not have made this happen without the support of our friends, family, Dublin city council and many local business's who's generosity was unbelievable.
