The Social Life of Unwanted Things

Activity: External talk or presentationInvited talk


Picking up on the themes of Lloyd Corporation's 2022 exhibition, 'Today's gift is tomorrow's commodity. Yesterday's commodity is tomorrow's found art object. Today's art object is tomorrow's junk. And yesterday's junk is tomorrow's heirloom', Annebella Pollen explores the local and global circuits of the secondhand clothing market, looking at how divested garments can move at speed through desire and disgust, traversing clashing values of use and waste.
