Patterns of Consumption

Exhibit open to public: April 1, 2022 - June 25, 2022

Plastic touches every aspect of our lives. It’s everywhere, from clothing, housewares, toys, medical devices, vehicles, and infrastructure. Yet the word “plastic” is equated with cheapness, both in quality of construction and value. How has a material that in only seventy years replaced all traditional materials in every application earned the reputation for being worthless? Shouldn’t we revere such a valuable material?

By treating plastic with devotion, like the precious resource it is, Kalliopi Monoyios points a finger at consumerism as the root of our pollution problems, while honoring a material that makes modern life efficient and comfortable. Monoyios collects, washes, folds, and sews used food wrappers and other plastics into new sculptural works using similarly undervalued art forms like quilting, weaving, and embroidery. The body of work in this exhibit expands on Monoyios’s themes of surprising and quirky uses of plastic, all with the goal of inviting people to think deeper about their own relationships with the material.
