SAVE OUR SOULS

A giant SOS distress call has been carved into a palm oil plantation in Sumatra by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic, calling attention to the ongoing destruction of Indonesia’s rainforests, the demise of iconic species such as the Sumatran orangutan and its effects on the global climate.

Save Our Souls is part of a series of unique art projects in and around Sumatra curated by Splash and Burn founder Ernest Zacharevic, run with Sumatran Orangutan Society which sought to use art in critical areas to give rise to a wider conversation on unsustainable palm oil farming in Southeast Asia.
