White Trash

In my art practice I collect discarded and unnoticed objects; the rejected mass-produced objects of everyday life. I reclaim these everyday objects and assemble this refuse into sculptural forms, drawing connections between the objects themselves and the natural environment from which they have been extracted.

Art Exhibition previously on in Victoria, Australia.
From Wednesday 15 July 2015 to Wednesday 12 August 2015

WHITE TRASH is a new site-specific work developed for The Gallery, St Kilda Town Hall. Each individual piece will be made from plastic found in the quotidian to replicate sea creatures such as barnacles, anemones, seaweed or jellyfish.

I chose white as an overall palette as white is a sign of purity, once discarded it is no longer revered and becomes the dirty litter. White or clear ‘single used’ plastic packaging such as foam, straps, bottle lids, bottles, bubble wrap, glad wrap and bags will be assembled to create visually eye-catching pieces.

Location

The Gallery, St Kilda Town Hall, 99A Carlisle Street, St Kilda VIC 3182
