Where: Incinerator Art Space, Willoughby

When: 27 August – 14 September 2014. Emilio Cresciani will give an artist's talk at 2pm, Saturday 13 September.

Artist Emilio Cresciani's work exposes the unexpected beauty found in photographing different types of rubbish, including images of construction and demolition waste created through building development. Cresciani's work explores the side effects of mass consumerism, and makes art of the waste made as a by-product of life in our modern society.

It is a sobering fact that refuse material from the construction and demolition industries makes up roughly half the solid waste produced globally, an issue that architects and builders are scrambling to resolve, looking towards a future of fast-paced developments and high density living. Australia alone generated 19 million tonnes of construction and demolition waste in 2008 and 2009, though 55% of this was recycled.

Cresciani graduate from the Sydney College of the Arts and was a finalist in the 2010 National Youth Self Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery. His projects display an interest in architecture, having worked for various architects and assisting renowned Australian photographer Richard Glover.
