Jun 11 – Jul 16, 2022
OPENING SAT June 16 4-6pm
71 Angus Avenue Kandos
Gallery Hours thu-sun, 4pm-6pm
Plastic-free Kandos brings Wollongong-based artists Lucas Ihlein, Kim Williams, Sister GlitterNul-lius (First Natons, Juundaal Strange-Yettica), Amber Jones, Lilli Rodriguez-Pang and Sydney-based artist Rox De Luca to regional Kandos. Following on from Plastic-Free Biennale for NIRIN, Biennale of Sydney 2020, Plastic-free Kandos presents an immersive and colourful exhibition of multi-sensory elements. PFK continues to grapple with how we can best manage the problem of plastics in our everyday lives during this 21st pandemic century. WAYOUT Gallery visitors can wander through an exhibition that engages with plastics, from the domestic to the global.
Assemblages and sculptures, prints, photos, videos and live performances tackle our sticky relationship with this useful but monstrous family of materials. The opening event promises to be serious but lots of fun with blessings performed by the witty and unapologetic Sisters of Perpetual PlastIx, a Ukulele performance of “Plastic in the House” with community participation from the Kandos Ukulele Group, Washing Up! (you can clean up after yourselves rather than chuck your trash in a bin and walk away), Be blessed! and Bell Ringing. You can also Touch and Feel the plastic sculptures and participate in a family friendly workshop where you can make your own found plastics garland. We welcome everyone to share their plastic stories and to reconsider their relationship to plastics.
