S1 Artspace is pleased to present Traces of a Cathode, an international group exhibition of recent works by Paulo Arraiano, Diogo da Cruz, Olga Grotova, Gweni Llwyd, Daniel de Paula & David Rickard, curated by artist Joseph Cutts.
Developed from Cutts’ ongoing research, the exhibition will provide an understanding of the cycle and formation of electronic waste (obsolete or discarded electronic devices) and the processes involved from the mining and extraction of minerals, through to the manufacturing and product distribution setup. Discarded remnants slowly sinking to leave something behind, undermining and deteriorating our beds and water passages.
Traces of a Cathode will address the improper ‘methods’ of electronic recycling globally and highlight the need for clearer and cleaner methods of recycling in our local communities and the roles individuals can play to decrease their carbon footprint.
As a contrast to the exhibiting works, Traces of a Cathode will also act as a carrier of electronic waste (e-waste), as we welcome you to deposit your redundant electronic items at our drop off point within the gallery space. Following the exhibition, S1 Artspace will partner with Aspire Sheffield (a Social Enterprise that specialises in computer recycling) to ensure your electronic goods are recycled appropriately or refurbished for a longer lifespan.
The exhibition is open from 11:00 to 17:00, Wednesday to Friday.
March 18 (Saturday) - May 20 (Saturday)(GMT+00:00)
