Wastework [group exhibition]

Parry, B (2023) Wastework [group exhibition]. The Winchester Gallery, Winchester School of Art, Winchester, 6 March - 15 April 2023.

Item Type: Exhibition
Creators: Parry, B
Abstract: Wastework is the third and final iteration of an exhibition which began as The Waste Makers on Cornucopia Street at Newhaven Art Space in 2022 before travelling to The Lethaby Gallery at Central Saint Martins. All three exhibitions explore waste and how we might interpret, rework and re-examine it. How do we arrive at waste? Is it matter out of place? What is the difference between dirt and waste? And what might digital waste be? Focusing on restoration and rehabilitation the show presents diverse artworks from North America, India, and the UK, representing the globalised nature of waste. The work from Compound 13 lab, for example, has been made inside the informal settlement of Dharavi, Mumbai, which recycles 80% of Mumbai's plastic. Curated by Ian Dawson, the exhibition continues to accrue new works and takes on new configurations in each space exploring how longstanding artistic practices such as collage and assemblage can glean new perspectives on waste studies and the politics of disposability. Ian Dawson is an artist, sculptor, lecturer and researcher. He is director of the Critical Practices Research Group at Winchester School of Art and convener of the Materials Lab at the University of Southampton. Contributing artists: John Walter, Donna Mitchell, Jasone Miranda Bilbao, Compound 13 Lab, Ian Dawson, Aqui Thami, Louisa Minkin, Sharmila Samant, Miguelzinta Solis, Andrea Mason, Ben Parry, Amanda Jobson, Marie-Louise Jones, Erika Trotzig, Jefford Horrigan, Mario Rossi, Mia Taylor, Stephen Cornford, Ali Eales and Trinity Art Group.
