Add in one highly-regarded fashion designer (e.g. Bensimon), and a pinch of good intentions from the “Chaine du Cœur”… let all this simmer nice and gently…
From this bubbling hotpot, a jury of professionals has chosen 7 finalists based on their various artistic enterprises all focusing on a central recycling theme.
Do come and find out more about these 7 finalists and their work on tape, on the chaine du cœur website .
You lucky people can also see these artists in the flesh at the Bensimon Gallery from 21-30 April.
Vote for your favourite piece of work!
You can ‘like’ your preferred piece of work for the duration of the exhibition. The artist with the most facebook ‘likes’ will be rewarded with a clip produced by the Chaine du Cœur where he/she can showcase their work.
Some bits of paper (initially headed for the bin), one vast yet simple theme (recycling ) and away they go!
We never cease to be amazed to discover the diverging routes that can be taken around one central theme…what on earth would you do with some old newspapers, an exhibition catalogue and one assignment: make a work of art based around the theme of recycling ?!
Well these creative guys came up with dinosaurs, comic strips, reconstituted trees and many other weird and wonderful things, all inspired by this one idea: to give their own interpretation of recycling by opening up the space for discussion!
If you want a taster, here is our short but sweet Top 3.

We’d love to play around with shapes using Daisy Hook’s work (we are also incredibly artistic didn’t you know !)
We are more than curious to see what George Godfrey-Fausset created as he sought to capture the pigments in the 1.618 catalogue… interesting! I, for one, have never seen a pigment let itself be captured but never mind!
See you at the Bensimon Gallery and on the net! Let us know which ones rocked your boat!
