Together with ART 2030, Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen has created a largescale performance project incorporating Goals 4, 8, 10 and 12.
Performing with custom-made uniforms created by the sustainable Scandinavian design studio sur le chemin, the artwork casts a critical light on the globalized textile industry.
Presented at several venues around the world, Tow with the Flow is an ever evolving work. By continuously working with new groups of young people, the project transcends borders and social backgrounds for a common cause: creating awareness about alternative modes of consumption for a more sustainable future.
Since its inagural performance at Roskilde Festival's Art & Activism program in July 2018, Tow with the Flow has shown also at the National Gallery of Denmark (SMK - Statens Museum for Kunst) in Copenhagen September, 2018; during ART 2030 New York in collaboration with New Design High School in September 2018; and most recently in Austin, Texas as part of the Roskilde x SXSW Program, March 2019; at ECC's Personal Structures in Venice, May 2019; at Heartland Festival, May 2019; and at Folkemødet in Bornholm, June 2019 - in collaboration with Bornholms Kunstmuseum and supported by the New Carlsberg Foundation (Ny Carslbergfondet).
