Venice Past

Waste archipelago

Gayle Chong Kwan
Solo show

A sensitive and singular approach to sustainability issues and participatory and inclusive experiences are the essence of the work of British artist Gayle Chong Kwan, on display from 22 May in her solo exhibition Waste Archipelago at the Venice gallery: an immersive and enveloping show in which the central concept of the archipelago aims to bring out, visually and conceptually, the interconnection between actions and ideas that humanity enacts and elaborates around waste and residue.
Gayle Chong Kwan explores the central role of the body and its relationship within a natural system of correlations, and the potentials that this perspective can offer.
