An art installation using waste materials or trash opened at The Negros Museum in Bacolod City Saturday and will run until April 24.

Titled “Debris Forest,” the art installation was created by French sculptor and artist Marc Gerenton, in collaboration with Negrense artists Revo Yanson, Ryn Paul Gonzales, Mike Borromeo, Svetlana Sevilleno, Vicky Gasper, Gigi Villamor, Ramon de los Santos, Kyle Jocson, Maria Isabel Destacamento, GilJohn Quiamco, Denews Fronteras, Winly Dasal, Mizpah Diaz, Jemuel Araneta, Arnel Villaceran, Ramon Caesar Alonso, Joseph Zapanta, Leny Yanson, and Sol Alejandrino.

Tanya Lopez, The Negros Museum executive director said “Marc worked with Negrense artists for five days to come up with something like a debris forest in a space at the museum. This is what will happen if we do not take care of our environment.”

At the opening, Emmanuel Mailly, a musician, collaborated with other artists to come up with music which she calls ‘sound painting’.

“Since they will be leaving, Emmanuel created a soundscape for the exhibit so when people come in they will feel the ambiance sound which he created for about 30 minutes,” Lopez added.*
