Project Description

Reduce, Reuse, Re:psychic


Trash Talk

In preparation for Trash Talk, local artist Maria Madacky sketched at recycling sites on campus and took photographs at the City of Lethbridge Waste and Recycling Centre as well as discussed issues related to waste reduction and processing with the University of Lethbridge’s Facilities and with City of Lethbridge staff. The paintings are oil and done on recycled materials. Wanting to invite other artists into the process, Madacky included M.E.D.I.U.M. (Metaphysical Explorations Divinations & Investigations Utilizing Magic), a performance group of which she is a part. Together they produced ‘exquisite corpse’ drawings that involved all 4 artists completing one work with the earlier portions covered so the artist only knew the title, but not what the others had drawn. As well, M.E.D.I.U.M. worked with Michelle Sylvestre to produce the video screened on the end wall, Reduce, Reuse, Re:psychic. – University of Lethbridge Art Gallery
