‘Gleaning for Plastix’ in conversation with Rox de Luca

On Friday the 28th of August, The Sisters of Perpetual Plastix made a voyage out to Leichhardt to visit the Articulate project space. We were visiting another protector of plastix, Rox de Luca.

Rox’s most recent exhibition ‘Gleaning for plastics, defying wastefulness’ features incredibly intricate arrangements of plastics, sourced when walking her local beach, either on Bondi or in Rose Bay.

“She collects the weather-worn fragments from the sand, and she takes them home to clean and to categorize by size, colour and shape. Then her defiant transformations occur”.
