Anna Bellotti Solo Exhibition
Opening Night: 7th March 6-9pm
Open daily 8th-11th March 10am-6pm
As part of the 2018 Sydney Design Festival, Food Waste: Unpacking the Rubbish Bin is a print based exhibition by artist Anna Bellotti designed to stimulate thought and encourage a dialogue about the impact of food waste on our planet.
From the convenience of our urban dwellings, it is easy to overlook the impact our engagement with food has on the planet.
Yet, as the planet increasingly transforms at the hands of humans, we must consider the effects of our everyday behaviours. Climate change is one of the biggest issues we have created, and tackling this is imperative. In Australia each of us waste almost 200 kilograms of edible food every year. Not only is the food itself wasted, but also the precious, finite resources required to produce it.
Through a series of aesthetically engaging and statistically accurate graphic representations of Australia’s food waste, this large-scale print exhibit brings food waste to the forefront of contemporary discourse and facilitates communication of scientific research to the urban community. With education comes awareness, and awareness leads to change.
