Re-make/ Re-model

14 Oct- 2 March 2011

Glass is theoretically infinitely recyclable – once formed, it takes less energy to recycle than to melt down the original raw materials. Glass can be melted and reused, without compromising its quality, time and time again. We’re more aware today, than at any other time, of our impact on the environment. With Christmas approaching - the most poignant reminder of our disposable culture, fuelled by consumerism - this exhibition takes a look at artists’ work and projects that reuse and transform materials, that reconfigure or alter pre-existing objects. In some cases this touches upon the actual recycling of materials, in others it is the making of new work that is more than the sum of its parts.

Curated by National Glass Centre and Matthew Hearn.

Artists: Darren Banks, Ruth Claxton, Nick Crowe & Ian Rawlinson, Jacob Dahlgren, Steven Emmanuel, Leo Fitzmaurice, Lothar Goetz, Christian Graser, Lucy Harvey, Charlotte Hughes-Martin, Amikam Toren.
