aWasteofSpace is an exciting exhibition has arrived at the Trinity Centre, Bristol (5th-9th August). The work of over 20 artists who focus on the art of recycling and art as recycling will push the boundaries on what you consider acceptable as rubbish art. The dynamic installations, mind blowing photographs and impressive sculptures will create an exciting but if not sobering experience on the way we look at rubbish.
The WasteofSpace exhibition is brought to you by Litterati which is an organisation that delivers to make art accessible through the means of recycling, not only the Litterarti work to educate youngsters on making amazing things out of rubbish but it also aims to deliver a full calendar of exciting creative events which will take place in 2015. For now, we just want to show you some amazing art with rubbish as the central theme to the exhibition.
Tuesday 5th August – Saturday 9th August at Trinity Centre
I’ll be exhibiting a full collection of my St Paul’s Carnival photography series. The St Paul’s Carnival series aims to document and report on the scale of the clear up process for large scale events. The photographs encapsulate the aftermath of a place once densely populated with festival goers now stranded with only the wasteful remnants of a party been and gone. The morning after the night before. The small area of St Paul’s has had to combat the constant reinforcement of bad press but with the news of six stabbings this year there was a central focus with these photographs to show St Paul’s as an interesting, charismatic and unique cosmopolitan. The focus of litter feels symbolic for the negativity which floods the streets, streets which are growing and evolving to be beautiful but are intermittently reminded of a nasty sub-culture of violence which lets the local residents down.
Did you see my photographs from St Paul’s Carnival the other month? If not, where were you!? The post was a resounding success and received over 600 views. Following on from the success of this post I am exhibiting the photographs in the aWasteofSpace exhibition (click here to see that post).
Here’s some documentation of the process of getting my prints together. For this exhibition I worked with a number of local printers in Bristol – Minuteman Press, Hobs Repo and my favourite local printers Press to Print.
