Recycle Your Electricals Exhibition at Landmark Arts Centre

Pop down to the beating heart of arts and culture in Teddington for the last chance to see work presented by the award-winning photographer Gregg Segal; made for the Recycle your Electricals campaign and shown at COP26 in Glasgow last year.

The exhibition is part of Trash to Treasure Fest – a community arts festival encouraging locals to fix, reuse and recycle their old and unwanted electricals; coinciding with National Recycle Week.

The recycled sound instillation will also be played during the festivals concluding day. The sound recording was created in the run-up to the exhibition using old electrical items, and with involvement from the Landmark's choirs and local schools. If you miss these run times you can also listen on headphones during exhibition opening hours throughout the rest of the exhibition.
