SKAWAGER is an ongoing art project by the Belgian artists Raf Veulemans and Miraschi since 2012.
Both artists share a deep concern for the state of the world and more specifically the conditions of nature and environment, and this is deeply grounded into their work.
Due to the increased power given to us through science and technology, we are learning how nature works – the gene, the atom, the brain. We are effecting our own evolution by everything we do.
With these new powers, we can destroy our life support systems … or we can move toward a hope-filled future of immeasurable possibilities. Quoting Barbara Max-Hubbard the choice is ours.
Skawager project is sending out a strong input -making a statement- in order to awake consciousness and developing a conscious human.
Their artworks are sometimes subtle and sometimes explicit, but never indifferent. Like scavengers, the artists work with dead materials: science, art and nature are drawn together in bio-assemblages.
Paintings and etchings are added to complete the picture. Waste isn’t waste but the start of something new.
