Discarded – AD Space Gallery – UNSW Art & Design.

Napier St, Paddington, NSW

19 – 23 June 2018

Finissage Friday 22 – 6 – 8pm.

Discarded protests against the desire for new and disposable, seeking a different narrative for the rejected and spurned. Work in the Discarded collection has been made from what would usually be considered rubbish. Rejected materials found in gutters, streams, laneways and the artist studio have been salvaged and modified into something new. The pre- existing character of items seized and reworked, extending life and adding to the history of what would commonly be considered redundant.

Jody Graham – Installing ‘Drawn from the Discarded’ Photo by Graeme Wienand

For 15+ and Adults
Discover the wealth of materials and inspiration the natural environment has in supply as drawing and painting tools. Participants will make drawing tools from discarded materials found in Auburn Botanical Gardens, then use these tools to create expressive drawings.
This workshop will open your eyes to the possibilities the natural environment has to supply material and inspiration to make artworks. Sitting in a making circle we will use found natural objects to make drawing tools, then use these tools to make expressive drawings with ink.
These tools will generate authentic natural expressive marks and you will have both drawings and a drawing tool keepsake to take home and reflect on the experience.
