London-based artist Gayle Chong Kwan has created a fantasy landscape out of used plastic food packaging for an exhibition in London.
The exhibition, called Atlantis, is commissioned by Arts Co.
Atlantis is at 29 Thurloe Place, SW7 until 6 December.
The exhibition also features photographs of previous incarnations of Atlantis completed by the artist.
The following text is from Gayle Chong Kwan:
Arts Co and Pia Getty are pleased to present an exhibition by artist Gayle Chong Kwan.
Atlantis is an enormous mythical landscape, a city created and carved out of semi-opaque, used, plastic food packaging, collected from people who live in London and covering the entire exhibition space.
The Atlantis installation will be accompanied by large-scale photographs exploring this enchanting and uncanny city of plastic.
Atlantis is generously supported by Brompton Estates.
