DESCRIPTION

The Loft at Liz’s is saying farewell to ‘Diverted Destruction’, a group show consisting of works fabricated from materials that would otherwise have been destined for a landfill. Diverted Destruction also features works exploring environmental themes such as sculpture, installations and paintings, including an installation created by the team at Liz’s, and also featuring a video by Ilvio Gallo.

Diversion, and reuse of demolition waste has been important to Liz’s Antique Hardware (The Loft at Liz’s parent establishment) since its inception thirty years ago. Hardware sourced from demolition sites as well as renovation and restoration projects from across the country makes up the bulk of the inventory at Liz’s Antique Hardware, because of this it is clear to us just how important recycling is. By hosting this exhibition we hoped to share our knowledge and shed light on why recycling is important on an individual, as well as global scale; We live in a world with finite resources and space, yet we are producing an ever increasing amount of waste materials. Through the symbolic act of creating works of art from discarded materials we hope to bring awareness to the often forgotten value of the old and discarded as well as demonstrate how one person can make a difference and do their part to keep recyclable materials out of the landfill.
