2013, Guimarães, Portugal
Plastic bags are everywhere, used by everbody everyday, mostly only once. In this project the bags were shown as a minimal object of our daily life, fixed on a frame, namely a black plastic garbage bag.
The transparent bags were made of two pieces of plastic and sewn together. In this case the transparent bag is more a „frame“ than a bag, where you can put things into and take them out again. It´s a frame for an old book or a picture, for example, which the artist found on flea markets and in second-hand shops.
