Entanglement is a series of large-format photographs produced and shot by artist
Michael JP Hall.
This series presents a group of beautiful, powerful and vulnerable characters living in a world of discarded plastic waste. Like us, these characters are unaware of the tragedy of their living conditions. By presenting human beings in vulnerable states, the work seeks to engage audiences in a dialogue regarding their own relationship with waste.
The costumes, and set-pieces created for the production were built entirely out of plastics collected from beaches, construction sites, film sets and recycling facilities. The absolute abundance of waste plastics available to feed the art direction of this production brings our entangled relationship with single-use plastics into focus. The costumes were created by Vancouver multi-disciplinary artist
Nita Bowerman, based on a concept by Hall.
The images were shot on location over the summer of 2013 in Vancouver, British Columbia. They continue to exhibit around B.C.
