Book launch and exhibition at Bildhalle Amsterdam: June 5-13.
Thirza Schaap is signing her book on Saturday, 5 June from 12 to 6pm.
The intention of Plastic Ocean is to create awareness around pollution and to try to prevent the use of plastic. Walking on the beach, Schaap finds plastic that has washed ashore and once at home transforms it into beautiful sculptures. By photographing these sculptures, she tries to evoke an emotional response from the public by creating a contradiction. A clash between the initial aesthetic appeal and after a second look: repulsion and the realization of the tragedy that waste causes.
