A large-scale, evolving installation that focuses attention on the future importance of environmental sustainability within artistic practice. Beginning with the interception of numerous truckloads of industrial waste, 2020? is a process-based project involving discarded material being diverted from landfill and dumped en-masse in the Arts House space. Prior to the project’s launch, a team of waste auditors have assessed, sorted and separated this dumped material into specific waste categories.
Co-ordinator and artist Ash Keating is joined by a team of collaborating artists who will be constantly reconfiguring the salvaged materials to create their own installations, interventions, structures and object-based works. This shifting creation happens within a dramatic backdrop of reused vinyl advertising billboards, manipulated in the tradition of culture jamming.
Ash Keating, with Kay Abude, Campbell Drake and James Carey, Ardi Gunawan, James Geurts, Bianca Hester, Inverted Topology, Susan Jacobs, Rus Kitchin, Bridie Lunney, Lucas Maddock, Pandarosa, Mia Salsjo and Soo-Joo Yoo.
