Chinese artist Kong Ning conducted her performance art in front of the site of the United Nations Climate Change Conference held in Katowice, Poland, on Dec 13.
She wore a red long dress sewn with 100 "red penguins", and a red penguin hat, advocating people to protect the earth and prevent global warming. The whole outfit is made of degradable materials, and the "red penguins" will be donated to kindergarten children after the performance, to further spread the environmental protection concept.
Kong said, "If the global warming continues, the glacier in the South Pole will melt, and lovely penguins won't survive anymore. I hope we humans can work together to avoid that and help the penguins live."
Kong devoted herself to environmental protection with performance art around 10 years ago and she plans to bring her artwork to the countries involved in the 2015 Paris Agreement.
She just finished her Little Blue Man global walking program in Budapest of Hungary. Standing in front of the ancient Mátyás Templom and Budavári palota, Kong wore the "Little Blue Man" suit advocating her green value of adding no weight to the earth just like a drop of water.
So far, Kong has shown her art in countries such as France, UK, Monaco, Australia, South Korea, and her next stop is Czech Republic.
