An immersive installation by British artist Gayle Chong Kwan, Wastescape explores New Zealand’s relationship with food and dairy through craft techniques and waste, and uses thousands of used plastic milk bottles and photography to create otherworldly landscapes.
Join artist Gayle Chong Kwan for a sensory tour of Wastescape, enabling blind and low vision participants to use their non-visual senses to experience and bring to life her ideas, research, and the development of the work. The tour will include elements of audio description. Wastescape explores our relationship with food and dairy through pre-colonial agriculture, craft techniques and waste, and uses thousands of used plastic milk bottles and photography to create otherworldly landscapes.
Chong Kwan is an artist whose photographs, sculptures, events and installations are exhibited internationally, both in galleries and in the public realm. Her work explores simulacra and the sublime through constructed environments, imagined futures, ritual experiences and sensory registers.
