Claire Willberg is an artist living and working in London. Recent work takes its inspiration from observing and recording the discarded small-scale plastic objects that are found whilst walking through city streets. These objects, the product of cheap manufacturing are the leftovers, lying around on pavement for months on end almost becoming part of the fabric of the street. This street junk, invisible and acceptable to many, is in some respect an archaeological snapshot of society, but nevertheless it remains representative and familiar.
Her work is concerned with exploring ideas around temptation related to the way we consume and look at the world trying to focus on the forgotten. The imagery brings a collection of objects together allowing them to regenerate and create new identities that are recognisable by their shape and interaction with colour rather than any connection to their previous life.
