What defines waste, and can its value depend on the eye of the beholder?
Presented by Kimbriki’s 2018 Artists in Residence Angela van Boxtel and Fraser the Razor, 'domesticated + reformed' will challenge our relationship with discarded materials and their impact on the Northern Beaches.
This exhibition will showcase works created during their time at Kimbriki and will run from 18 October – 28 October. (exhibition launch will be Wed 17 Oct, 6-8pm - all welcome).
Through a variety of traditional and contemporary techniques, we will gain insight into their respective creative journeys, shared appreciation for our natural environs, and unquestioned commitment to making beauty from what would otherwise be forgotten. The Kimbriki Artist in Residence Program is proudly sponsored by Northern Beaches Council.
Angela van Boxtel: Local Eco Artist and Designer Angela van Boxtel is passionate about upcycling waste with traditional and craft techniques such as weaving, knitting, crochet, embroidery and coiling. She is endlessly inspired by the colourful and crazy possibilities of discarded materials. Always looking for ways to give back, Angela was most recently involved in the Youth Eco Summit 2018 (YES) and has worked with Newport Primary School to deliver a waste mural for the local community.
Fraser the Razor: Fraser the Razor is a local emerging Sculptor working with mild steel. He has exhibited in Gallery and outdoor Sculpture Exhibitions such as Four Elements Water/Fire and Hidden at Rookwood, Lidcombe. Throughout his Artist Residency at Kimbriki, Fraser has been inspired by the flora and fauna found locally on the Northern Beaches and the impact of increasing environmental challenges. This body of work aims to highlight the importance of waste reduction.
