Set to strengthen the up recycling movement in Myanmar, Pure Gold run from December 15, 2018 to January 6, 2019 from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm. The exhibition opened to the public, freeof-charge.
Lead curator Volker Albus said, “Recycling finds a natural home in Myanmar where many people are already transforming trash into useful beautiful objects. We have seen a children’s playground built entirely out of old tires, deco-lamps from beer bottles, shopping baskets from candy wrappers and many more remarkable creations that show the ingenuity of the local people.”
Pure Gold visitors could view 76 unique exhibits from 53 designers from all over the world, alongside works of Myanmar artists, artisans and designers. They had a chance to take part in live recycling demonstrations, workshops, and an interactive public art. From decorative sculptures out of discarded industrial materials to a shelf made of old water heaters, Pure Gold showcased the diverse culture and creativity of the designers in turning every day waste products.
