Every year Latitude Gallery goes to the Abrolhos Islands for clean up Australia Day.
CLEAN UP AUSTRALIA DAY
BECOMES OUR FLOTSAM & JETSAM ART COMPETITION
As part of clean up Australia Day, Latitude Gallery pioneered an annual clean up of the Abrolhos Islands, followed by a competition for locals to create a work of art from the debris. This was named by Pia as ‘Flotsam and Jetsam’ with Flotsam meaning ‘the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on or washed up by the sea’ or ‘ things that have been rejected or discarded as worthless’, AND Jetsam meaning ‘unwanted material or goods that have been thrown overboard from a ship and washed ashore, especially material that has been discarded to lighten the vessel’.
Take a look at some of the amazing art works created over the 7 years this competition has been running……
