Plastic pollution has become ubiquitous in our oceans and on our shores.

Beach Couture is a collection of wearable artworks made from rubbish by artist and environmentalist Marina DeBris. Collected from beaches and oceans in Sydney, Australia and Los Angeles, America. It makes visible, in grotesquely amusing fashion, what is often overlooked – but shouldn't be. 

The exhibition also features the wildly subversive Inconvenience Store, showcasing repackaged 'convenience' items found washed up on the beach.

Walk away aware of the growing problem of ocean pollution and be inspired to take some action.
