BEAUTY IN THE LANDFILL? AESTHETIC EXPERIENCE AND POLLUTION
ARTISTS: Ruta Putramentaite, Tita Salina
We imagine ideal nature as immaculate and clean, but such an idea no longer corresponds to the prevailing reality. Natural history documentaries artfully cover up the reality of pollution and toxicity, which isubiquitous today and not only outdoors but also inside our bodies. The exhibition will also focus on how we are connected to the rest of life on earth in this regard. Is it possible to seek beauty even in a landfill?
Objects made from waste and nature by Ruta Putramentaite are a way of reusing unusable materials. Tita Salina’s video, in turn, shows the connection of waste with globalization and the power structures of late capitalism.
