‘A year of something new’, LANDMARK HONG KONG – HONG KONG
William Amor was invited by the Landmark Hong Kong to celebrate the new artistic theme on the environment, ‘A year of something new’. This work, which was created using predominantly plastic materials, illustrates the overconsumption that is taking place in our society, the proliferation of waste, and the issues we face when it comes to recycling.
William Amor has created an installation laden with meaning, which is adorned with more than 200 individual floral creations made from recycled plastic. The artist reveals his unique artistic style through a work that has been created using recycled waste materials, which have been transformed through techniques inspired by traditional French arts and crafts.
Plastic bottles and bags and other previously unrecycled items are transformed into something beautiful thanks to William Amor’s unique skill, and are displayed within an extraordinary installation that is 13 metres high and 25 metres in circumference.
Through this work, William Amor wishes to make viewers aware of how their consumption habits contribute to pollution. These little pieces of plastic, which represent our existence, give a depth and a touch of poetry to the entire installation, lending it a dream-like quality.
