The Urban Gleaner and the Plastique, Pt.II examines the consumer waste that is a growing area of concern and inspiration for the contemporary jeweller.

With many different types and vast amounts of plastic used on a daily basis in our (sub)urban environments – these materials 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 ask how we may wear and integrate them in new and innovative ways.

Artists: Renee Hope (NZ), Regina Middleton, Lauren Simeoni, Sanna Brantestad (SWE), Isabelle Azaïs (BEL)

Curator: Laila Marie Costa
