I do think art is always re-use. Of ideas, inspirations, thoughts, sometimes materials…

Talking Rubbish is the name of a show documenting art from the Western Cape, South Africa. The show took place in Norway and Lithuania (2007), but you can still take a look at the beautiful website. The focus is on the interplay between rubbish and art.

In interplay with photographs by Knut Egil Wang, the exhibition presents a vibrant culture in recycling material, and focuses on people’s strong will of looking for possibilities rather than despair. Talking Rubbish shows how the seemingly useless can be transformed into storytellers and objects with a universal value, and how narrow the boundary between the useless and valuable may be.
