To celebrate Porky Hefer’s participation in Triennial 2020 – 2021 with Plastocene – Marine Mutants from a disposable world 2020; a major new work consisting of a series of large-scale handmade environments based upon imaginary sea creatures from a dystopian future he calls the Plastocene, the NGV design store has collaborated with Porky to create a range of merchandise including this durable tote bag.
Porky Hefer sees beauty in the functional, the ordinary and discarded. Hefer’s creatures remind us of plastic bags, straws, coffee cups, trash, and the discarded detritus of hyper-consumerism, convenience and environmental neglect.
Materials: RPET - made using recycled plastic bottles, digitally printed with embroidered detail and fully lined with internal hanging pocket
42cm x 48cm, handle length 33cm
Exclusive to the NGV design store
