RAISE AWARENESS & ENLIGHTEN THROUGH ART
Since 2009, 1.618 has dedicated an area to contemporary art. Art, in response to a society in search of meaning, questions consciences and encourages reflection on the world around us.
The exhibition Pure Waste, in the fifth « carte blanche » entrusted to COAL by the 1.618 Biennale, gathers the works of international artists who, in sublimating waste, pay tribute to the value and necessity of the humblest materials, to engage visitors in the challenges of Today.
Oceans of plastic, food waste, disposable materials, rubbish piling up endlessly in our garbage cans, on our sidewalks; nature twisted by humanity, electronic carcasses, toxic waste, tainted resources, pollutants which accumulate everywhere on the planet … These are the images from around the world which haunt us without profoundly modifying our own behaviour and nor that of our industries. Yet in this world of limited resources, each scrap of material is a resource that has the potential to become the raw material for something else. In nature, matter moves in a continuum where the notion of rejection does not exist.
The artists of Pure Waste magnify, reveal or disguise the potential and qualities of neglected matter, use the absurd to dismantle the industry of false solutions and greenwashing, and dare to attempt to reverse the cycle of destruction. Toxic or waste material turns into forest, objects are returned to their essential function or acquire some unexpected ones, while our beliefs, they crack, suddenly becoming as ephemeral as the screens of our iPhones …
THE ARTISTS :
Le Nouveau Ministère de l’Agriculture
Stéfane Perraud and Aram Kebaddjian
ACCELERATE COMMITMENT THROUGH RESPONSIBLE SOURCING
Instituto-E & Osklen
Think Beyond Plastic
Ecological innovation in raw materials
During the Biennale, 1.618 wants to demonstrate that qualitative and responsible sourcing solutions exist !

of view and experiences.
The 250-seat auditorium of the Carreau du Temple, a three-day cycle of debates will be hosted, with the mission of informing and inspiring the public and the creative industry.
