The celebration will present installations by international artists whose works have transformed consumer waste into powerful visual manifestos. Among these are Claudia Borgna’s ironically ethereal installation of plastic bags; Marcus Eriksen’s wall map, composed of colorful tiles of plastic debris that have been melted down and placed in the corresponding continents where they were collected; a glowing life-size animal made of plastic by Cynthia Minet; a statement by Antoaneta Tica in the form of a colorful dress of PET bottles; a virtual reality trash experience by film students from the Konrad Wolf Film University in Babelsberg, Germany; and more.Those attending the opening party of the exhibition and book launch of The Universal Sea, Pure or Plastic!? on August 8th are invited to participate in lively “trash talk” with guest host, Ed Begley, Jr., celebrated actor and passionate environmentalist, as well as with the artists and symposium speakers in attendance. There will be new videos, a live performance by artist Sarah Julig, and a chance to experience a virtual reality world of trash. Each participant will receive a copy of the book, hot off the press; be entered into a raffle to win a unique artwork, and walk away with a bespoke MOoW tee-shirt. And to gratify an urge to shop, a selection of ingenious and unique creations will be available for purchase, including stylish bags made by Middle Eastern refugees on Lesvos from their abandoned life jackets. Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served.
