An eco-art show created from discarded items

Friday, 01 October 2010

Trash gathered by young people and children from the beaches of Klaipeda in Lithuania, along with objects that floated to the shore, became works of art with the help of professional designers. The goal of the programme, which took place on the initiative of the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Office in Lithuania, was to show the compatibility of art and nature preservation and encourage young people to care for the environment. The exhibit will be opened in the Aatrium gallery in Tallinn on Monday, 10 November.

Every object constructed from discarded materials was given a function and purpose by the children. “In the end, there were more ideas than trash,” commented Lithuanian designer Anatolijus Klemencovas.

The exhibit is coming to Estonia from Copenhagen. After Klaipeda, it has also been displayed in Vilnius.

The exhibit will be open until 17 November. The Aatrium gallery is in the Tallinna Ärikeskus at Harju 6
