Joe Franc: Spoils

Sat & Sun, 12 – 6pm

Preview 17 November, 6 – 11.30pm

An exhibition of Joe Franc's remarkable collection of chairs meticulously crafted from discarded materials discovered in the North East.

Joe Franc‘s practice is centred around using found and waste material to construct functional furniture and objects. By utilising both domestic and industrial waste, Joe aims to celebrate the details and marks of the material’s past. Each piece is dictated by the opportunities presented by the materials, resulting in a diverse body of work. By manipulating discarded objects, he aims to re-value these artefacts as well as instigate a conversation about Western throwaway culture.
