‘Waste Not’ Art Show at the Barbican

22 February 2012
 I stumbled across an exhibition at the weekend, which I found quite moving.  A Chinese Artist called Song Dong has filled the Curve gallery in the Barbican with thousands of his mothers possessions.  
His father died quite suddenly and his mother slipped into a deep depression, so he decided to dedicate his art work to helping her deal with her grief and get her out of her depression.
Here are a few snaps I took of the show, even the most mundane objects look so beautiful set out in multiples. From a family of hoarders myself I could sort of relate to it!
Textile students would like this show I think. excuse my bad phone photos.
