Indonesia is the worlds largest exporter of Palm Oil. The commodity has long been a controversial issue, receiving much media attention in peak moments of crisis but very little in the months between the burning seasons. With global consumption increasing beyond the need to conserve our impact on our environment and communities, Splash and Burn aims to introduce a new perspective to the conversation on unsustainable palm oil. Using art as a tool, we suggest bridging the gap between the corruption surrounding the industry and the wider consciousness of the global consumer.
Splash and Burn is a project curated by Ernest Zacharevic and Coordinated by Charlotte Pyatt it serves as an awareness campaign for the efforts of the Sumatran Orangutan Society and the Orangutan Information Centre
