Environmental activists pouring maple syrup over painting at Vancouver art gallery

MOSCOW, November 14 – RIA Novosti. According to one report, two eco-activists destroyed a painting by Canadian artist Emily Carr at an art gallery in Vancouver by soaking it with maple syrup. Declarationpublished on the museum’s website.

“The Vancouver Art Gallery has confirmed that two people broke into the gallery and damaged a permanent collection of artwork – Emily Carr’s Stumps and Sky (Eng. Stumps and Sky – ed.) … Gallery staff We’re Working in Vancouver to investigate this act of vandalism. “I talked to the police,” he said.

Video from the scene, posted on social media by the anti-fracking movement Stop Fracking Around, shows the two girls walking towards the painting and soaking it with maple syrup before sticking their hands on the wall. According to the community, this action was intended to draw attention to the problem of the construction of the Coastal GasLink gas pipeline in the Canadian province of British Columbia.

“Syrup spilled over[a picture of Emily Carr]and people were shocked. But nobody cares when the government invests in the destruction of human civilization by building the nature-destroying Coastal GasLink pipeline,” the movement’s Twitter post said.

As the Globe and Mail wrote, citing Don Marshall of the Stop Fracking Around community, the artwork was not harmed as the activists specifically selected the painting, which was protected by glass and failed to take significant damage as a result of the protest. He also added that activists chose this particular painting because it depicts a landscape with stumps, which he says symbolizes deforestation in British Columbia.

Recently, protests organized by climate activists in Europe to draw attention to the problem of climate change have become more frequent. Egypt is hosting the 27th UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) from 6 to 18 November. Activists are calling for active action by governments to combat global warming and comply with the obligations enshrined in the 2015 Paris Agreement.
