CURATOR’S STATEMENT:

Are we going far enough?

Similar to the remorseful afterlife of packaging, environmental artists negotiate the physical and social impact of their materials and presentation. Transactions of artwork then pass responsibility back onto consumers. While there is a purpose for environmental work which is sellable and object-based, Post-Consumer Content provides five local artists a space to merge creativity with direct action. In this exhibition, installations and performances will take place outdoors; allowing public participation and disruption to the urban landscape. Featured artists transcend a purely aesthetic experience by presenting work which is experiential, immersive and educational. From a youth-curated cabinet of curiosities, sculptures made from salvaged materials, a live performance to interactive shrines—Post-Consumer Content beckons us to imagine creativity after the art market; a circular way of making with mutual survival for the artist and viewer.
