Intro
In the hierarchy of the major poetic substances, it [plastic] figures as a disgraced material, lost between the effusiveness of rubber and the flat hardness of metal.
/ Roland Barthes

An examination of the consumer waste that is a growing area of concern and inspiration for the contemporary jeweller. This exhibition is part of the ClimARTe festival 2019.

We interact with so many different types and vast amounts of plastic on a daily basis in our (sub)urban environments. These provide a rich source of inspiration and most importantly allow artists to make comments on a social, political and environmental level. As artists become contemporary bricoleurs, scouring their homes, workplaces and public spaces for materials, they are a collective group of inquirers that question how we may wear and integrate them in new and innovative ways. The reclaimed and found plastics are used alongside traditional jewellery materials to create wearable pieces that are beautiful, colourful and inspire dialogue on sustainable design and human behavioural patterns.

This exhibition will follow up investigations of Urban Gleaner and the Plastique that was held at Studio Ingot in Feb. 2016.
