It was during a 2011 workshop about environmental responsibility in Colombia that Alvaro Catalán de Ocón had the idea of restoring value to used bottles made of PET (polyethylene terephtalate) by retrieving these used products and transforming them into suspensions. All over the world, the recycling of bottles is a real concern. This project proposes to restore certain qualities to a plentiful but poor material by appropriating an object earmarked as waste and using the extremely beautiful craft techniques of basketry which exist in the four corners of the world.

Opening: Wednesday 18 May 2016
