Vincent Mock’s sculptures of life-sized mega fauna of the oceans are entirely made of long line fishing hooks, reflecting both on their beauty, and on the danger that we humans are to their existence. All artworks of AMO are available for purchase, including the 12-meter-long whale shark which is currently displayed in the setting of Phi Beach. This impressive sculpture is made entirely of 40.000 longline fish hooks, and 100% of the profits of the sales of this masterpiece will be donated to Sea Shepherd and their efforts in protecting our oceans.
The exhibition AMO by Vincent Mock was initiated and curated by Lavinia Schimmelpenninck who, in collaboration with Andrea Brugnoni, founder and creative director of Promenade du Port, brought together a diversity of partners and sponsors to fulfill her meaningful exhibition. Among the partners are One Ocean Foundation, acting as the scientific partner of AMO, providing the team with all the knowledge of their scientists about the represented species. Vincent Mock is available for appointments at his pop up studio at Promenade du Port until September 30, 2021.
Unique artwork invented to protect the sea
The exhibition AMO by Vincent Mock aims to raise awareness around the importance of protecting the endangered species of our oceans, through his powerful and gracious sculptures. Twelve life-sized sharks, manta rays and sea turtles are displayed on six different locations along the Costa Smeralda from July until the end of September. AMO proudly supports Sea Shepherd and is organized in collaboration with and hosted by Promenade du Port in Porto Cervo. AMO celebrates the resilience of nature, while reminding us of how little we know about the importance of these species to the future of our planet.
