“Life after rubbish” held at MMGallery in Mercato Metropolitano - fantastic space attracting thousands of visitors each day - is curated by YMX. Artists are selected purely on the basis of their talent.
We live in a disposable society. If you break a plate, or stain a shirt, or crack a glass, it's easier to throw it away and buy a new one than it is to repair or transform. With this exhibition, our aim is to aware and explain the issues of London’s citizens waste disposal methods and consumption habits.
“Life after rubbish” would like to give London’s citizens a real sensory perception of how much, and what type of waste is found along and how much can be transformed and be art. Beyond the pleasure of admiring beautiful artworks, we especially hope this art initiative will help people reflect more on the impact our trash is having on the environment. Billions of tons of trash end up in our oceans every year and a shocking number of marine species are threatened with extinction because of our inability to deal with our waste. Let’s produce less waste and more art! YMX and Mercato Metropolitano welcome submissions including discarded and unwanted items, cardboard, glass, electronic, metal, plastic, wood, second hand items.
Mercato Metropolitano is London’s most innovative space and first sustainable community market for conscientious music, art and food lovers in the heart of Elephant and Castle. MM promotes a healthy and sustainable approach by focussing on artisans and local producers and by raising awareness of sustainability through its onsite urban farm, cookery lessons, cultural programs of films, exhibitions and events.
