Place in Instagram: Underwater Museum “Atlantic”

Underwater Museum “Atlantic” opened off the coast of the Canary Islands in January 2017. Its creator, artist Jason Taylor, took about a year to establish an exhibition on the seabed, and about a year to create sculptures. The museum is located in the bay of Coloradas near the island of Lanzarote. The figures are set at a depth of 12-15 meters, they can be watched not only by scuba divers, but also by tourists who ride on boats with a glass bottom.

All the sculptures, according to the creator, are made of dense concrete, which does not have harmful effects on the marine ecosystem. In total, the museum exhibits more than 300 figures, they are united in art installations, designed to illustrate this or that philosophical idea.

The biggest installation is the “Circle of People”. In it, about 200 sculptures are arranged in a circle, which in general is meant to symbolize the origin of life in the water and its dependence on the ocean. The installation “Crossing the Rubicon” is a concrete wall with a single passage in the center, to which 35 figures “step”. The composition, according to the artist, shows a senseless barrier in the middle of an infinite three-dimensional water space, where you can move in any direction.

These and other installations: “The Lampedusa Boat”, “Transmutations”, “Anthropocene”, “Inertia” not only reflect the author’s vision of the relationship between man and nature, but also attract hundreds of tourists to Lanzarote. Many of them dive with scuba diving here to make a memorable photo.To favorites

MUSEO ATLÁNTICO. ‘Crossing The Rubicón’. ******************************************** “If at first you don’t succeed, try again.” (See my insta story for explanation) ******************************************** First of all: THAT’S ME!! I never thought I would get over my fear so I had to stress it. 😉😂 My first successful dive was to this incredible underwater art museum/artificial reef, Museo Atlántico. It’s an incredible project installed to ‘educate, preserve, and protect the marine and natural environment as an integral part of the system of human values.’ #Lanzarote

Europe's first underwater art museum opened this week. The Museo Atlántico of Lanzarote features the work of British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor. The intention is for the installation to become a large artificial reef. (@jason_decaires_taylor) #underwaterartmuseum #underwatersculpture #artificialreef #museoatlantico

Twelve metres down in the pristine waters near the south coast of Lanzarote you'll find the Museo Atlántico. Opened in January 2017, this underwater museum features the work of British sculptor Jason DeCaires. The collection has been designed to promote environmental awareness and social change. Over time, the pH neutral cement sculptures will create an artificial reef that will help the marine life flourish. Scuba and snorkel 'tours' depart daily from the Marina Rubicón port.

Museo Atlantico is the first underwater contemporary art museum in Europe and the Atlantic Ocean by artist Jason deCaires Taylore. Museo Atlantico in Lanzarote, Spain has 300 submerged works spread over 12 underwater installations placed at around 14 meters deep, which will turn into artificial reefs over time, supporting the rich marine life. This museum, as its mission is to promote education, seeks to preserve and protect the marine and natural environments of the ocean as integral parts of our world in the present day.
