Vivan Sundaram "Trash"

SEPIA International | The Alkazi Collection

poster for Vivan Sundaram "Trash"

This event has ended.

Developing a theme that has engaged him since 1997, the Trash series explores the social implications and aesthetics of urban waste and second-hand goods. Vivan Sundaram's deployment of urban detritus, the result of the frenzy of global consumption, recalls modernity's fascination with recycled objects and the modernist procedure of bricolage.

The exhibition spans two floors and will include fifteen large-scale photographs made over the last two years; 12 Bed Ward, a large-scale installation; and video. This will be the artist's second solo exhibition at SEPIA since 2006.
