Join us for a special late night opening of Mariele Neudecker: Plastic Vanitas at the Nunnery Gallery, with curated tours from Gallery Director Sophie Hill.


In it's very first month, Mariele Neudecker's enchanting photographic series Plastic Vanitas has seen visitors flocking from across London to explore the world of plastics through her still life vanitas lens. Curated by Susan Lambert and developed as part of a residency at the Museum of Design in Plastics (MoDiP) and the Arts University Bournemouth, Neudecker re-presents the MoDiP’s plastic collection as vanitas still lifes.

"“I selected boxes which had at least one object in them that would have been used in that period [16-17th Century vanitas still lif...es] – for example, the flute, or the book…There were lots of beautiful things in there, old and new…I just didn’t want to put them back in the box. It’s a big collection, and I loved the way yoghurt pots could be wrapped in two layers of archival tissue and kept amongst really precious things" -Mariele Neudecker
