Along with transforming conceptions and treatment of waste, SPACES artist Olanrewaju Tejuoso (Lanre) plans to explore issues of loss and trauma through the stories of abandoned/discarded sites and objects. By treating trash as a precious art supply and focusing on the unspoken needs of the community, Lanre hopes to offer an alternative to the damaging ways humans treat the environment and their space, both physically and emotionally.

Lanre has begun to work with discarded materials he’s found in the neighborhood, including chip bags and discarded wood, as well as to collect fabric scraps from local manufacturers.
