For Louise

A polar bear rug with an important message that Louise would approve of.


Year: 2008
Participants: Ricardo Casas, Alejandro Castro, Héctor Esrawe, Emiliano Godoy, Cecilia León de la Barra.

Global Warming contrasts the comfort and softness of a rug with a thorny problem that is specific to our time. Following the age-old tradition of using rugs as a means for communication and a cultural record, NEL is portraying global warming in a scene that invites us to reflect on our impact on today’s world.

The rug is manufactured by the Spanish rug and carpet company Nanimarquina; visit its webpage at
