Justin Morrissey chats to Simon Reece about his show at the Cultural Centre.
Flotsam and jetsam
29 June – 11 August 2019
Simon Reece’s exhibition Flotsam and jetsam is about rubbish, debris, detritus and how it impacts us but also reflects us and who we are. In the universe, cosmik debris is scattered throughout. This space waste becomes the building blocks for the universe itself. Something bigger is formed from this rubbish. However, our climate malaise is brought about by waste which is also creating something bigger. In this case, large blooms of jellyfish are appearing and highlight the detrimental warming of the oceans and the collapse of ecosystems.
