Gurugram: The Hyphen, an art collective for social impact, is proud to announce its collaboration with M3M Foundation and Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) to create thought-provoking art installations aimed at promoting environmental conservation in Gurugram.
The Hyphen brought together sixteen talented artists from across the country to craft two massive sculptures made from recycled scrap metal. The Sparrow sculpture, installed at Khushboo Chowk, stands as a powerful reminder of the impact of mobile tower radiation on bird populations, urging the preservation of these essential creatures. Additionally, the Honeycomb structure, placed at IFFCO Chowk, emphasizes the urgent need to protect bees for a sustainable future, as their extinction could lead to a silent apocalypse wiping out human existence.
FThe Hyphen, in collaboration with M3M Foundation, will soon install an art installation on G20 logo made from plastic waste at HUDA Chowk. This installation aims to spread the message of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam (the world is one family) while advocating for a plastic-free environment. Another installation at AIT Chowk features a 22-foot hand made of industrial waste, holding up the earth, symbolizing the collective responsibility to protect the environment.
Commenting on the collaboration, Dr. Payal Kanodia, the Chairperson and Trustee of M3M Foundation, expressed her pride in providing a platform for young artists while contributing to environmental conservation. She highlighted the commitment of M3M Foundation to make a tangible difference in the fields of environment, water, education, and health.
Subhash Yadav, Additional CEO of GMDA, applauded the efforts made by The Hyphen and M3M Foundation in the direction of environmental conservation and pledged the support of GMDA for such initiatives.
The Hyphen, a driving force behind these initiatives, remains devoted to empowering artists as change-makers, fostering creativity for a better world. The organization aims to continue collaborating with like-minded individuals and organizations to enhance the impact of art for positive change.
