The golden fillet

Why do countries self-harm? Luis Maly (1991) wonders about this as he takes a critical look at the sustainability ambitions of the Greek government. Greece wants to catch up in the field of sustainable energy by stimulating wind energy, but climate groups have criticized the specific plans, which would be at the expense of vulnerable nature. At Prospects, the artist shows The Golden Filet (2023): a metal scale model of part of the Greek mountains in which he plays with symbolism and mythology to express his criticism. When is sustainable technology really sustainable and why are solutions to climate problems usually sought in new technology?
