Amo exhibition Sardinia Italy, collaboration
From July 1 to September 30, 2021
Promenade du Port, Porto Cervo
After sunset, the artworks take on a different dimension as they are lit up by reflections of underwater images of the seas in Sardinia during daylight. To achieve this light dimension, Vincent Mock entered into a collaboration with Clifton Mahangoe. Mahangoe has designed light art for his 4 installations.
“During my creative process I caught the magnificent light in the waters of the sea of Sardinia while being connected with the shark sculpture I captured the light patterns to elevates the sculpture.”

From July to September 2021 the exhibition AMO will showcase 11 sculptures by artist Vincentmockart on Costa Smeralda in Sardinia, Italy, in support of Seashepherd and hosted by Promenadeduport.
The exhibition AMO by Vincent Mock is a manifesto of love for the endangered megafauna of the oceans, in support of Sea Shepherd and hosted by Promenade du Port, Porto Cervo. From July 1 to September 30, 2021, eleven large-scale sculptures by Dutch artist Vincent Mock will be installed along the coastline of Costa Smeralda, where the underwater flora and fauna are flourishing again since this part of its coast was made a marine protected area. Mock’s sculptures of life-sized sharks, manta rays and sea turtles made entirely of fishing hooks are a celebration of the resilience and fragility of nature. Through his powerful and gracious sculptures, Vincent Mock aims to raise awareness around the importance of these species for the health of our oceans, and for the wider future of our planet and humanity. 100% of the profits from the sale of the leading artwork of AMO, the 12-meter-long whale shark made from 40,000 longline fish hooks, will be donated to Sea Shepherd’s ocean conservation efforts.
