Margherita Marchioni

Margherita Marchioni is an Italian artist whose work predominantly involves the use of recycled materials as components within her works. Rather than just buying a much of plastic bottles or rubber gloves, Marchioni actually aquires an enormous amount of discarded material herself to produce her works.

What interested me in her work was the decontexualization of the materials she uses, especially with the plastic shopping bags. In the close-up image you can see that they appear quite soft and delicate-looking, like tissue paper.
