ME Dubai Hotel hosts a collection of environmentally centered artworks by activist and eco-artist Natalia Kapchuk portraying the beauty of planet Earth juxtaposed to the far-reaching consequences of human-induced climate change.
From March 4th to May 1st, 2023, an architectural wonder within the United Arab Emirates, the ME Dubai Hotel, designed by the late Zaha Hadid, hosts a collection of celebrated works by London-based artist, environmentalist, and philanthropist Natalia Kapchuk for an upcoming solo exhibition. In collaboration with Art|Kōrero, JP Art Advisory, and FprBuro Communication Agency, the display features over twenty mixed-media creations as well as digital and AR installations by the artist within the hotel’s newly dedicated gallery space, overlooking the hotel’s central atrium.
More than twenty large-scale artworks and installations form the centerpiece of the exhibition. Since its inauguration in early 2019, The Lost Planet series is now home to over forty environmentally-centered contemporary works as the series continues to grow, fanning the artistic mission of artist Natalia Kapchuk and her portrayal of our current world. Garnering inspiration from the expanses of the Sahara desert or the mounds of plastic littering the Pacific Ocean, for example, each artwork focuses on the innate beauty of nature, either in its entirety or shrouded in the consequences of climate change and human activity.
In their creation, artist Natalia Kapchuk found it essential to implement eco-friendly applications to her physical art pieces, incorporating elements like reclaimed wood, up-cycled plastics, and plant-based techniques and materials. Such intent reflects the global need for exercising safe alternative approaches to common yet destructive practices to thwart ecological decline. Moreover, to contrast naturally resourced and industrial materials, the artist utilizes mediums such as tree bark, sand, stones, and fermented moss with polymers, resi-crete, gilding, metal chips, and more. Pushing her artistic approach further, the artist works with fiberglass construction, LED lighting, and digital and augmented designs, continually developing her signature style.
Artist Natalia Kapchuk is an ambassador at both The Parliamentary Society of Arts, Fashion and Sports (UK) and the Better World Fund (BWF), as well as a philanthropist supporting charities and organizations dedicated to protecting the world. Before creating her works, Kapchuk undergoes extensive research on various topics related to global warming, ocean plastic and pollution, and other destructive impacts. Absorbing such information, the artist urges humanity to shift attention toward environmental protections and the conservation of natural resources and less on greed and consumption.
Since its debut back in 2019 at the Unit X art space in London, England, The Lost Planet series by artist Natalia Kapchuk has traveled to countless locations like renowned Château de Crémat in Nice, France, and the Czong Institute for Contemporary Art in South Korea, spreading its message of environmental awareness, protection, and appreciation for public resonance.
Now, back in Dubai since its appearance at this year’s World Expo and other group events, The Lost Planet installation returns to the UAE for a solo exhibition at the breathtaking ME Dubai Hotel. The stunning architectural structure and boutique-like interior are the designs of Iraqi British architect Zaha Hadid. The awe-inspiring atrium and curved sculptural balconies pair well with the mesmerizing works of artist Natalia Kapchuk as their vibrant hues and striking designs adorn the space.
The exhibition will run from the 4th of March to the 1st of May 2023
