Melting Art Installation in London Aims to Highlight Global Warming

LONDON – Blocks of ice from Greenland have been placed in front of an art gallery in the United Kingdom capital for an installation aiming to draw attention to the issue of global warming.

“Ice Watch London” by Minik Rosing and Olafur Eliasson, a collection of pieces of ice weighing between 1.5-5 tons each, would remain outside the Tate Modern until it melts.

“By bringing the ice to London, Eliasson and Rosing enable us to engage with the ice directly. We can look at it, move around it and touch it,” the gallery said on its site.

The ice was taken from Greenland’s Nuup Kangerlua fjord after becoming detached from an ice sheet, according to the Tate Modern.

The artists hoped the piece would help people understand “the reality of climate change by experiencing Ice Watch.”

“As a result of global warming, more icebergs are being produced. This is contributing to rising sea levels,” the gallery said.
