100% Recycled @ Griffith University
Grey Street Gallery
9-22 December 2019
Opening Event: Monday, 9th December 6pm – 8pm
Led by Dr Elizabeth Shaw and Clare Poppi, 100% Recycled challenged jewellers to use discarded and broken jewellery and recycled metals to create new pieces which are 100% recycled. The materials used were primarily donated from jewellery boxes and drawers and include precious, natural and manufactured materials.
Forty-one artists have made new works for this exhibition and each piece is for sale. This is a timely reminder to choose your Holiday presents carefully and ethically – most materials are on our planet for centuries or millenia. 100% Recycled features quality original works that have been made locally from ethically sourced materials, 25 % of proceeds will be going to Ethical Metalsmiths to assist with their advocacy and educational work.
NB. Thank you Clare and Liz for organising such an interesting and thought- provoking exhibition. 10/10
