A Universe of Islands Workshop - CONTACT 3017

A Universe of Islands explores the idea of nationalities and borders when their existence is more nebulous than ever.

Garbâge Pop-Up Show

Garbâge is a pop-up inspired by the waste of consumerism and wealth. Works featured critique abandoned and discarded objects and their owners either through depiction, metaphor, or direct use in the piece. Enjoy works in a care(ful/less)ly crafted faux-bourgeoisie atmosphere while rethinking your own waste and the pretension of pseudo-activism.
