This autumn the Museum of New Art welcomes the visitors with the ninth exhibition on recycling GIVE A NEW LIFE
The aim is to let the fantasy fly freely and recycle it into art. What is old and worthless for someone, is the gold for another.
Through this exhibition we want to change the way of thinking to environmentally friendly. Waste from production is a heavy load for environment but with designers and artists fresh glance can create fresh design.
So, the list of recycled materials is huge: broken mirrors, ostrich eggs, vinyl records, silk stockings, driftwood, old works of art, embroydery of cross-stitch, car parts, old paper, package material, bowling balls etc.
As a special theme, Marta Moorats introduces mending technique for textile – visible mending.

Activities to help avoid/lessen industrial waste are becoming more and more important for society. One of the ways to produce less waste material would be through new ideas. As climate change is so actual we have to think more about diminishing our footprint. Give a New Life is one one of the chances to get inspiration and value old things and less consuming.
