trash to treasure
If you are in Melbourne and near Federation Square I suggest popping by The Atrium to check out 1,000 discarded kitchen utensils.
Really? I hear you say.
Why these are no ordinary kitchen utensils, I tell you!
Actually, they are. However these kitchen items have been thoughtfully collected from 'secondhand stores, sheds and flea markets' to be transformed into amazing, intergalactic looking sculptures by the very clever Donna Marcus, so you would never know.
Given their shiny surfaces, pretty colours and hanging nature they also remind me of vintage Christmas decorations! Don't you think?
I know some of you may have already seen this but I couldn't resist posting about Donna myself. I do love it when someone knows how to re-purpose an everyday item so beautifully and Donna has been up to this for years - check out her equally wonderful past exhibitions here.
Re-Entry by Donna Marcus, is a free exhibition on at The Atrium, Federation Square until 29 May.
