Opening Friday 21st August 6 -9pm


In a three-month residency in Seoul, Ash Keating enlisted the help of several art students in the collecting of waste and melding it into sculptural costumes. A series of ‘interventions’ were then performed in the streets outside sporting and fashion wear shops, with a clear message: ‘The Rubbish is taking over!’

The Colour Factory worked with Ash to produce this series of artist prints and look forward to joining him at the opening. The exhibition runs from 22 August – 5th September.

Increasingly aware of their ecological footprint, contemporary artists are investigating more sustainably responsible art practices. Using a large quantity of salvaged, domestic and industrial materials from the neighboring Moonee Valley Transfer Station, the TS2 project explores the creative possibilities within an artistic context.

Artist Chaco Kato was the aRtECYCLE 2008 winner and will be the Incinerator Artist in Residence for the duration of this contemporary art exhibition.
