INVOLUNTARY PAIRS man-made lost in Nature

 

Online preview of the exhibition is now available on HKMM’s YouTube Channel

A collection of objects of marine plastic pollution, individually picked up from Hong Kong beaches since 2013. Each is matched with an item found in nature to form an Involuntary Pair; the two objects look alike, yet one originates from nature, the other from human manufacturing. An astonishing collection that makes us rethink our relationship with consumer goods, especially in the festive season.
