Nevercrew - Christian Rebecchi and Pablo Togni- is the duo Swiss street artist active since 1996 and were included in 2015 in the list of the 100 most influential artists by Graffiti Art Magazine.
From October 16th to 22nd, they have returned to Ticino to create a mural work on the building that hosted the exhibition “Street Art. From Basquiat to Banksy, the kings of the street”, by Artrust, which called “ Disposing Machine”.
"Habits, attitudes, principles and awareness are conditioned by reality, and reality is conditioned by the perception everyone has of it. The position of humankind in its environment, in its World, is at the same time part of its nature and a point of view from which to perceive it. Systems are then interpretations, a way to give human shape to something that’s not necessarily made for it, as well as a way to decide which shapes to give and how to read them. As reality could be built and altered by systems, so nature could then risk to be detached from human sensing; an human reconstruction of something that exists outside this given shape but that still is directly subjected to each action that's made on it."
"Disposing Machine" has as subject, one of their favorite symbols, the whale.
"Nevertheless, everybody can recognise a whale, thus it gains a nearly mythological connotation: it is something deeply rooted in the collective imagination and yet so far away that only a few people can really experience it.
the whale is for us a symbol of the relationship between mankind and nature as it carries its whole history, the manufacturing overwhelming power, exploitation, dehumanization and pollution, while maintaining at the same time a strong empathic and communicative value as almost iconic and decontextualized living being."
