Gil Shachar – Cast Whale Project
In the making. The death humpback whale stranded at the coast of South Africa. Due to the decaying process the work on site has to be done as fast as possible. A standby team trained by the artist has started to cover the whale in hard fiber material. Meanwhile the artist has arrived.
