The Window of Modern Art
WoMA a 3 by 2 meter exhibition window that is refreshed with new art works regularly.
The Berlin based artist Johanna Keimeyer shows a sculpture entirely made of collected plastic. The sculpture consists of plastic packaging that penetrates a shell which is larger than life-size. A precious shell formed of polluting plastic materializes the drastic issue of destroying nature through garbage.
Johanna Keimeyer (born 1982) studied design and digital media at University of the Arts (UdK), Berlin, at TamaArt University Tokyo, and at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), USA and MIT Media Lab, Boston, USA.
Exhibition: September 26 - October 11
