Use plastic again and again and again
Julian Jankovic’s work is characterised by a passion for the new artistic use of recycled materials and a certain understanding of community. In this context, the material plastic with its versatility has always played a central role in his art; by experimenting a lot with it and its processing, he has created many inspiring projects in recent years.
One of them is particualary focusing on participation – It is about gathering plastic caps from and for the community to create new sustainable objects in Florisdorf. A district that is rather tainted with bad rumours, but which is much more than that for the newly moved artist. – Through these projects, he aims not only to strengthen the community, but also to give residents a deeper and more long-term understanding of recycling.
