Bloomin’ Rubbish is a project created by artists Deirdre Nelson* and Frances Priest in association with Covepark artists in schools residency programme in Scotland. They have been working with Parklands Primary School In Helensburgh, Scotland, to make an interactive garden of recycled blooms. Bottletops and plastic lids have been collected all over Scotland in contribution to the Bloomin’ Rubbish garden.
The Garden continues to grow in Helensburgh, Scotland, but also in Kampala, Uganda, as Frances from the Bloomin’ Rubbish team is currently in Uganda with 32º East | Ugandan Arts Trust.
You can follow news of Bloomin’ Rubbish (and see lots more pictures) on Facebook HERE.

Giving Up Is Not An Option
Steel, laquer, ladder, brush, paint bucket / 800 x 210 cm / Ole Ukena, 2012

The viewer who enters the exhibition place gets confronted at first sight with a situation in which the artist is about to finish setting up the artwork. A ladder, nails and paint are still on the floor seemingly waiting to be used. At second sight the sentence Giving up is not an option is surely to be read ironically.

The artist gave up installing a piece named Giving up is not an option and the work is finished exactly by not being finished.
