Cracking Art at Cheekwood!

Cracking Art is a Milan, Italy-based artist collective born out of the intention to radically change the history of art by investigating the relationship between natural and artificial reality. By using 100% recycled plastic materials, Cracking Art creates site-specific installations using large-scale, natural animal forms made of synthetic materials, playfully arranging meerkats, bears, crocodiles, birds, and other animals in surprising invasions of familiar landscapes. The artists of Cracking Art will collaborate with Cheekwood to share a truly unique and extraordinary visual experience this summer.
