Fondation Villa Datris, L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, France
June 20 - November 1st, 2020
 
For its 10th exhibition in 2020, the Villa Datris Foundation has chosen to explore recycling in all its forms in contemporary sculpture and to question our relationship to objects.
At a time when sustainable development has become an absolute priority, contemporary artists are taking up this fundamental issue with particular acuity. They also find it a rich source of inspiration for recreating a new world.
Deliberately, by conviction or by choice, artists resort to waste as an artistic material in its own right, renouncing the acquisition of so-called "noble" materials to create or compose their works.
These scraps, rubbish, detritus, objects left behind and rejected by the flow of consumption find a use, a utility, an identity - a true social metaphor.
