Rubbish, plastic bag  2009
glass aluminum leaf mixed media / cast
h 500 × w 350 × d 160 mm
Wind-blown plastic bag, flatted empty can, paper carton, cigarette packs…
I feel that these objects have a dominating presence in my life.
However, they are regarded as having no value and no beauty. If I make an artwork with a variety of materials in the rubbish theme, is the artwork worth more than the rubbish it depicts?
I am very interested in the idea of beauty, because I think that this rubbish is beautiful.
Can I take the rubbish that no one pick up and make it valuable?
This is a great challenge for me.
