When

Every day, all day Thursday 23 September to Saturday 16 October

'TRASHED’ investigates the material conversations of waste. How has disposability translated into the materiality of the objects around us?

Interested in the feelings and memory these throwaway objects evoke, Hayes comically uses trash to build vessels of Western cultural heritage. Our garbage becoming a biographic assemblage of certain value systems.

The unimportant plastic bottle, the takeaway container and toothpaste ironically put on a pedestal, vitrified, forever set in stone. Almost sarcastically, the works are critiques of how material value is manufactured. But in the environment it does not matter, material hierarchy does not exist, and both refuse to break down and return to the earth.

‘TRASHED’ is tongue in cheek; what are the impacts of consumerism on the environment? Do we even care?

The exhibition will be presented virtually in line with COVID restrictions, visit the gallery website to view the exhibition and to download an online catalogue.
