DESCRIPTION

(Re)-Claim presents a critical investigation into the discarded objects of the everyday or what gets left behind and the redemptive process that renders an object "fundamentally new." How does detritus reveal the imprint of its locality and the residue of human lives? This exhibition locates the self in poetic, imaginary as well as ecological modes and gives voice to moments personal and historical by re-framing the present. In a time of frugality and perceived scarcity- the impetus that nothing shall be discarded also includes stories, history, memory and ultimately, our deep interconnections.
