Art Can Be Rubbish Too aims to encourage recycling, civic pride, and asks us to look again at our own relationship to waste.
Throughout August 2021, Warwickshire-based artist Rob Hamp travelled to the following locations to collect litter and sand that will inform the work: Skegness (2nd August), Great Yarmouth (4th August), Weston-Super-Mare (9th August), Blackpool (11th August), St Ives (17th & 18th August), Margate (23rd August), Folkestone (25th August).
Back in Coventry, Rob is hosting collaborative and performative sorting sessions, where the waste materials are sifted through, documented, elevated into temporary micro-artworks before being responsibly disposed of. The final artwork will be presented at the Old Grammar School in Coventry from October 2021 to January 2022.
