Intro
PRECIOUS is an exhibition that asks us to look at the ways in which we covet and desire some things and discard others; the luxurious materials we revere versus those we so easily dispose of. Christine Dwane explores the use of unconventional materials in response to increasing ecological and environmental urgency, using upcycled materials such as plastic wrappers and milk tags.
