Weave Fortune exhibition to end this Tuesday

Story by Patience Nyagato, Arts Reporter

A group of female visual artists is championing environmentally-conscious creative practices by utilising non-biodegradable materials to create art at an exhibition that marks 30 years of bilateral relations between South Korea and Zimbabwe.

Dubbed ‘Weave Fortune’, the visual art exhibition currently underway at the National Gallery explores a waste management programme that creates art designs from recycled waste.

Spearheaded by Just Project, the exhibition is a collaboration between Korean and Zimbabwean artists.

“We have prepared this exhibition for the Zimbabwe-Korea 30th Anniversary of diplomatic relations. We started with the Bulawayo basket and Buhera basket. In Korea, we have a similar craft. So Weave Fortune is the title/ name of the exhibition because our similar thing is weave. There are four teams from Korea and four from Zimbabwe. You will see a number of products made from waste,” said director and designer, Yi young Yeun.

As part of the initiative, plastic was recycled to make artworks and handbags, while other products were made out of environmentally-friendly materials, including cornstarch.

The initiative is aimed at promoting sustainable waste management practices.
