2020?

Ash Keating's 2020? at the Nth Melbourne Meat Market, May 08

Ash Keating's 2020? is a large-scale, evolving installation that focuses attention on the future importance of environmental sustainability within artistic practice. Beginning with the interception of numerous truckloads of industrial waste, 2020? is a process-based project involving discarded material being diverted from landfill and dumped en-masse in the Arts House space at the Meat Market.

Co-ordinator and artist Ash Keating is joined by a team of collaborating artists who will be constantly reconfiguring the salvaged materials to create their own installations, interventions, structures and object-based works. This shifting creation happens within a dramatic backdrop of reused vinyl advertising billboards, manipulated in the tradition of culture jamming.

2020? will be under constant surveillance, with live-feeds and video-footage of the processes of the various artists’ projects and the installation’s earlier incarnations being projected back into the exhibition arena. 2020? concludes with a forum involving artists and environmentalists unpacking the conceptual and practical issues of environmental sustainability that are explored within the project.
