Argentine artist Alexandra Kehayoglou is bringing awareness to man-made environmental damage with her eco-conscious, handmade rugs. Drawing inspiration from her native country, Kehayoglou reinterprets landscapes of home with detailed textile materials fashioned by traditional weaving techniques.

Scenes from the Santa Cruz River and Perito Moreno Glacier, both of which have been affected by human interference and climate change, have been reimagined as installation pieces. The meticulous works remind viewers how crucial protecting our eco-systems from the growing threat of climate change is.

Having been outspoken against deforestation and man-made disasters in the past, Kehayoglou has steadily applied her activism to subsequent collaborative works. In 2014, she partnered with Dries Van Noten on a textile exhibitionk for the brand's SS15 women's debut at Paris Fashion Week. A year later, she created a large-scale installation work for Art Basel Miami, followed by an installation project at the National Gallery of Victoria for the 2017 Melbourne Triennial.

Elsewhere, Sam Friedman is showing his 'Flesh of the Gods' paintings in Hong Kong.
