For its 10th exhibition in 2020, the Villa Datris Foundation has chosen to explore recycling in all its forms in contemporary sculpture and to question our relationship to objects.
At a time when sustainable development has become an absolute priority, contemporary artists are taking up this fundamental issue with particular acuity. They also find it a rich source of inspiration for recreating a new world.

Deliberately, out of conviction or by choice, artists resort to waste as an artistic material in its own right, renouncing the acquisition of so-called “noble” materials to create or compose their works.
These scraps, waste, rubbish, objects left behind and rejected by the flow of consumption find a use, a utility, an identity – a true social metaphor.
