The Three Kings bring clean energy, represented by wind turbines, and the wind symbolizes the new breath of the Planet. The artist creates a parallel between the ancient biblical disaster and the current ecological situation. The sculptures were hand-sewn from fabric and absorbent cotton, while the locusts (in the guise of the lurking menace), were made from Murano glass by Berengo Studio. Marya Kazoun, a Lebanese-Canadian artist, ranges between installations and performances, often site-specific narratives. (Assia Karaguiozova)
