The Krank
FOOTPRINT, Field in Mongonissi

With his giant “Footprint”, Greek artist The Krank created a 1.000 square meters work of land art for Paxos Biennale 2022, which let’s us reflect on our ecological footprint that has become a metaphor for humanities exploitation of natural resources.

The artist silently worked the huge piece of land like a canvas for 15 days. The result is a bold and moving message that has been shaking islanders and visitors in Paxos. With his artwork, The Krank responds to a growing call for active participation in shaping the ‘world we want’ with regards to economic growth, social well-being, and environmental challenges, while the current Covid-19 pandemic continues to cast a shadow on the global conversation on sustainable development goals.
