Sopor är bra

Sopor är bra – garbage is good. That is the name of an exhibition at Rian Design Museum that opened on September 14.

The exhibition shows garbage in a new shape. Garbage that dresses our bodies, decorates our homes and that occupies our thoughts.

The exhibition was curated by Helena Hertov and the other participating artists were Maria E Harrysson, Marie Louise Hellgren, Tobias Juretzek, Malmö Upcycling Service, Remake, Johanna Törnqvist samt Monica Gora and Gunilla Bandolin


For the opening an excursion from Göteborg to Falkenberg was arranged by the museum and Svensk. It was a bus ride together with a happy group of people followed by an intense and fun day of openings, speeches, lectures and lots of very nice small talks.
