IKEA - ‘Lost At Sea’
Ikea Art Event 2016 - Image 'Lost At Sea' - Mandy Barker invited as one of 11 contemporary artists from around the world to create a limited edition image and poster to be sold in Ikea stores globally.
Marine plastic debris was recovered from six different continents and six different oceans around the world, and arranged on a black background to represent this hidden world of plastic under the sea.
“Taking part in this event made it possible for people around the world to buy an image of my work, and by doing so engage a wider audience with the issue of marine plastic. Displaying the poster in their homes will hopefully stimulate discussion and lead to further awareness”.
