As promised, I’d like to report back with a bit more detail, about the Hartberg Museum Exhibition- Recycled Art. The main reason, why the Symposium took place, was to make the conceptual art proposals for the coming Recycling Art Festival and to show the people in Hartberg and its surroundings, that recycling materials can be fun. The slogan “Trash-Chance-Idea” and all about the passing of time, were our guide lines. Each of the Artists and Designers approached the topic in a different way. We became a strong, lively group, getting on very well together. We were – Zara Alexandrova, Chris Gossington, Manuela Fritz, Erki Kasemets, Margit Klammer, Christian Kammerhofer, Hertha Wendelin Kovacs, Miss Lata, Iveta Laure, Evelyn Loschy, Wolfgang Luh, Baiba Osite, Pernilla Philip, Kiril Prashkov, Daniela Riedl, Liga Sakse, Dieter Serfas, Luca Zupelli and I, Silvia Krupinska.  I need to mention and say thank you to Margit Nohrer and Manuela Fritz, who were the organisers. The journalists from Radio Hartberg made during the private view this short video and here are their photos.

I had a wonderful time in the city of Hartberg, which charmed me so much; I definitely want to go back in a couple years for the Recycling Art Festival. I miss the people and the food already!

Here is the fully recycled hero ‘Animal’ with its fully recycled ‘Food Tray’ and behind it,  its ‘Poo Tray’ which is all, yes again, made from all-recycled materials found in local Ecopark. (All rights reserved.)
