cannibals


Recently I checked out a new shop in town which promotes artists who make objects all made from recycled materials. It is called Cannibals and it is right next to Keep ‘Em Flying on NW 21st (next to Glisan).
This place had pillows remade into modernist designs by Randy Moe for starters. It also had handmade clocks, handbags all constructed out of the plastic bags used to package the local newspaper, all kinds of furniture remade and reconfigured. Cannibals also has the work of Melanie Goldstein (see above). She takes her grandmother’s lingerie and uses it directly as the print material, which she overlays onto vintage wallpaper.
