Artist Vincent Skoglund Transforms Landfill Waste into Sculptural Installations
Artist Vincent Skoglund, creates stunning sculptural installations out of locally harvested trash from landfills. He assembles these monolithic, orderly structures on site, and then photographs them documenting the bits and pieces in a new context. Skoglund work challenges viewers to reflect upon our consumer culture and the relationship we have with our environment. “To me, the dump is intriguing. It’s one of the most interesting places." He explains,"The randomness is so vast. Colours and materials in different states of decay, coming together. I’d rather spend any day walking around on a dump than in a shopping mall."
