Trödelmarkt explores the phenemenon of the fleamarket and the fascinating way that something once treasured becomes trash, then treasure again.

Compiled from local refuse with a limited budget during a two week residency, this multimedia installation is an equally attractive and repulsive nostalgia-ridden multisensory experience. The piece will culminate in a closing fleamarket on July 16th, advertised widely and drawing art-visitors and fleamarket-goers alike, where all the accumulated materials will be released back into the world at thrift shop rates.
