RECYCLED TRASHURE

RECYCLED TRASHURE is a series of sculptures made of recycled plastic. These sculptures include chandeliers, shells and fish tanks.


During Berlin Art Week 2018, an installation of RECYCLED TRASHURE was shown at Window of Modern Art (WoMA) addressing the current topic of plastic waste in the oceans.

Included in RECYCLED TRASHURE is DROWNING TRASHURE, a large-scale assemblages of collected plastic penetrating a shell.

Polluting plastic materializes the drastic issue of environmental protection of the ocean. DROWNING TRASHURE addresses the sad irony of pearl divers finding colorful plastic instead of shimmering shells. Keimeyer collects the trash objects for the artworks while kayaking on the river Spree in Berlin and across Europe.

 
 

 
 

The chandelier TRASHURE 2 was exhibited in the private collection of Alexander von Vegesack (former director of the Vitra Design Museum) called “Adventure with Objects” in Pinacoteca Agnelli, Museum, Turino, Italy, March 2008, and various international exhibitions such as “Luminous Times – Sustainable Architecture”, France in collaboration Vitra Design Museum and Centre Pompidou.
