From litter off the streets — to odds and ends in the house; these artists from all around the world find a use for what others would toss without a second thought. Cassettes, discarded toys, floppy disks, hard disk drives, eggshells, recycled clothes & magazines are among things that can — occasionally — be turned into gold.
In the last year Konsthopp have visited numerous of exhibition dedicated to some sort of recycled art. Examples includes; Buffé (Stockholm), Cotton Rags (Reykjavik), Sæborgin; Kynjaverur og ókindur (Reykjavik), Monument (Oslo), Losun (Reykjavik) and Sorp er auðlind (Reykjavik).
