  10. 11. Kader Attia “Ghost” Aluminum Foil In Ghost , a large installation of a group of Muslim women in prayer, Attia renders their bodies as vacant shells, empty hoods devoid of personhood or spirit. Made from tin foil –a domestic, throw away material– Attia's figures become alien and futuristic, synthesising the abject and divine. Bowing in shimmering meditation, their ritual is equally seductive and hollow, questioning modern ideologies –from religion to nationalism and consumerism– in relation to individual identity, social perception, devotion and exclusion. Attia's Ghost evokes contemplation of the human condition as vulnerable and mortal; his impoverished materials suggest alternative histories or understandings of the world, manifest in individual and temporal experience

  13. 14. German artist HA Schult makes people out of household waste and glue. By the thousands, he is a one-man recycling center. &quot;Anything can be made into art. Mankind's confines have narrowed, the freedom of art is unlimited.We live in the trash time: we produce trash and we become trash. Therefore HA Schult's 'Trash People' are images of ourselves.&quot;

  21. 23. Plato’s Garbage Pile Tim Noble & Sue Webster Real Life Is Rubbish , 2002 Tim Noble and Sue Webster. Partners in both life and art, Tim Noble (1966) and Sue Webster (1967) explore the toxic influences of consumer culture through new modes of portraiture. Turning garbage into complex and visually arresting sculptural installations, Noble and Webster exploit, manipulate and transform base materials, often using self-portraiture to undermine the “celebrated” authorship of the artist.
