Help kickstart Unbearable

The Sculpture Unbearable 

The huge Unbearable sculpture is to be displayed at COP21 in Paris in December, the most important UN Climate Conference in years. The eye-catching sculpture will be the symbol of how human activity affects the global climate and remind the public of our responsibility to future generations.

A 20 meter long climate graph, impales the Polar Bear in 6 meters height. The graph shows cumulative global fossil fuel carbon emissions. It starts in year 0 and continues along the ground for 17 meters. Then rises dramatically around year 1850 as human consumption of fossil fuels like coal and oil takes off. The graph ends in year 2015, six meters above the ground impaling the polar bear.

Artist Jens Galschiøt on the project: "I am creating the sculpture Unbearable to stage humanity's negative effects on our climate. At first sight the sculpture might seem foolish or tragicomical. But then you realize that a polar bear is being pierced by a graph of carbon emissions created by human consumption. Many believe that we are on the right path to solving the climate crisis, but we won't get there unless we change our ways – now!"

Organizer

We are a group from gallery Galschiot who wants to manifest the huge Unbearable sculpture, so it can be displayed at COP21 in Paris in December.
