In their fascinating book “RUBBISH! The Archaeology of Garbage”, authors William Rathje and Cullen Murphy argue that “we are what we throw away”, and that what we throw away gives us useful insights into our lives and even into our culture as a whole. Lithuanian artist Aidas Bareikis has been roaming the sidewalks, flea markets and junkyards for years assembling what others throw away into his altarlike complex installations. In his new work currently shown at Canada, Bareikis wraps, stacks and sandwiches trash into sculptural installations that often use found furniture as plinths. He then “varnishes” his sculptures with paint or leaves them exposed to the elements. Bareikis knows that garbage doesn’t lie -it provides a window into the lives we lead and proves that consumerism is a beast that feeds on our throw-away society and imperils our efforts for a cleaner planet.
