The motivation to create a new product out of used plastic bags is born of the artist's apparently inherent instinct to prevent waste production.


Irene Wölfl has always found it exciting to use old, apparently useless waste products as raw materials; to give discarded objects new form and function. Apart from the fascination of giving new life to old things, there is, buried within this love of recycled material and products, certainly an element of social criticism. Irene Wölfl aims to demonstrate that, contrary to the trends and opinions prevailing in the throw-away-society of the western world, everyday objects can have more than “one” life. Whatever form these works of art take, they deserve all due artistic respect. They show the excellent variety of colour combinations and form offered to us by the omnipresent and opulent raw material waste.
