JACQUELINE DE MONTAIGNE
THIS IS NOT A ZOO
This is not a zoo (founded in 2018 by Folelé productions) is the largest permanent exhibition of international street artists in the world on show in Tenerife in the National Museum of Tenerife.
Jacqueline de Montaigne was one of the original group of artists invited to take part in the exhibition which has since grown to over 180 street artists from around the globe. The exhibition uses art as activism by highlighting animals that are in danger of extinction, especially animals endemic to the canary islands. Jacqueline created 4 original artworks of endemic bird species and sub-species from the Canary islands. The small series was called more valuable than gold, highlighting that nature is more valuable than any product that humans produce to satiate consumerist needs.
