Buried in waste – The environmental art project, Zabaltuna

Zabaltuna is an art project that came to life with the sole purpose of fighting waste management problems in Tunisia through awareness raising. The idea was to publish digital collages combining characters from orientalist paintings and street photography. Zabaltuna literally means “You buried us in waste”, my way to give the power of speech to our ancestors that would be ashamed of us if they saw what we’re doing to our environment. That’s why every piece is posted on social media with a tunisian proverb that can describe the artwork and the situation.~Zabaltuna
