A Love Affair with Plastic

A Garbage Bag Installation

A Love Affair with Plastic is one of two on site works I created at the Gladstone’s Grow Op 2020 show.

Grow Op was very intensely focused on growth and greenery. I wanted to present an acknowledgment that human beings have, in essence, wrapped the world in plastic. 

I walked into a Sobey’s – where they give paper bags only at checkout – and purchased three boxes full of plastic bags.

I created A Love Affair with Plastic in the span of a day, pinning it to spots on the wall. The piece points to Wrapped Crucifix, a sculpture in the Wrapping the Gods sculpture series.
