Neudecker, M (2015) Plastic Vanitas. The Gallery, Arts University Bournemouth, UK, 10 September 2015 - 26 November 2016. ISBN 9780901196675 [Exhibition]
|Abstract:||Plastic things are all around you but how much do you notice them? The 'Plastic Vanitas' exhibition is a series of photographic artworks by Mariele Neudecker that re-presents the collection of the Museum of Design in Plastics (MoDiP) as vanitas still lifes. MoDiP, the only accredited UK museum with a focus on plastics, is a research resource of Arts University Bournemouth where Plastic Vanitas was created during the artist’s residency. The project and exhibition have been organised in collaboration with TheGallery at AUB. Vanitas painting is a specific genre of still-life painting that flourished in the Netherlands and Flanders in the 16th and 17th century in which the most exquisite accoutrements of everyday life are presented as symbols of the worthlessness of earthly achievement and the inevitability of death.|
