‘Reclaiming Miami” is an exhibition created by artist, Lucinda Linderman & is currently on view in the WYNWOOD EXHIBITION CENTER

Artist statement:
Frustrated by my over-consumption and production of plastic and paper waste from food and product packaging, I ‘upcycle’ my trash to create abstract sculptures that reference the body. By using waste as building blocks for sculpture, I offer one alternative to throwing trash into a landfill and hope to inspire others to think of waste as a raw material.

About this Exhibition:
Lucinda uses reclaimed trash from around Miami and creates large abstract sculptures, referencing biology. Her sculptures are made from 100% reclaimed material, no dyes or glues are used to construct them, and some sculptures are even recyclable.
Lucinda uses a variety of materials such as sheet plastic, consumer packaging, construction fencing, and detergent bottles. Many of her sculptures are interactive, and recently, she has been exploring and doing performance work.
For this exhibit, the artist will hang a labyrinth of dry-cleaning bags, 25ft by 25ft, that people can walk into. She will fill the rest of the area with a deconstructed construction fencing, and a series of small wall sculptures. Many of these sculptures will be accompanied by photos of where the material was reclaimed.

Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
