Discarded Beauty, is a photography and mixed media show by two extraordinary artists - Kiki Machado & Edwige Bernanoce - who both, in their unique way, transform discarded junk into beautiful treasure. One man's junk is another man's…. Kiki manipulates paper- turning old envelopes, used sewing patterns and torn pages from books - into striking images with harmonizing tones, colours, and shapes which capture the tropical colours of her native Brazil and the ashen grey and green tones of London, the city in which she lives. In contrast, Edwige photographs mannequins, broken and found in a skip, creating images so still, distant and dreamy… you could fall in love. ‘They can be directed like actors on a stage; they are the representation of severity and seduction, of humanity and dehumanization. These portraits tell the story of freedom, respect and love.' Contact: Elena Pippou, Arts Officer t: 020 8489 1419; e: elena.pippou@haringey.gov.uk)
