LCAD – Focus On Recycling

focus-recycling-100Focus On Recycling
26 April – 11 June 2010 (Extended)
Liverpool artist Colin Serjent is staging a photography exhibition in the city depicting various  and sometimes unusual forms of recycling initiatives taking place in the city. Examples of recycling he has portrayed in his exhibition titled ‘Focus On Recycling’, include Urban Strawberry Lunch, who make musical instruments from waste materials and found objects and perform them at gigs; and C.U.T.S (Communal Use Textiles Studio) on Slater Street, who stage workshops of sewing and screen-printing using recycled materials.

He also depicts the role of recycling adopted by local artist collective Red Dot,which he helped set up.

“For example, I show photographs of the various activities that took place in the two Recycling Weeks we staged in the city in 2008 – the first ever held in the city –  and in 2009,” said Serjent,” as well as the workshops we held, where the participants made artwork from recycled items, and exhibitions we staged, in which all the artwork had been created from collected disused materials.”

Other proponents of Liverpool-based recycling Serjent features are Bulky Bob’s, which offer a household waste collection service, of which  the items are then reconditioned and sold at a low cost to city residents; Otterspool Household Waste Recycling Centre; and Valley Fields Environmental Services, who offer NVQ’s in Recycling and Waste Management.

Admission free.
