What we have stored, the waves throw back up. We treasure the ocean for its abundance, so what use is all its plastic? Ocean Store is a multi faceted work that frames process as performance and speculates on a future resource. In the guise of a playful pop-up store on an urban beach, the oceans store of plastic will be celebrated and explored in all its colourful glory. Engage with this timely issue within a nuanced framework of performance, art object and participation. Ocean Store is now open. Are you?

Find the Ocean Store container on the waterfront beach between Te Papa and the Marina.
Open from 10am – 11pm over two weekends (Thurs – Sun: 21st – 24th Feb & 28th Feb – 3rd Mar)

Free family friendly participatory event. Gather ocean waste, sort into colours and types, create artworks and engage in discussion around plastic waste and use.

Presented as part of Performance Arcade 2019. In support of Seaweek 2019: Tiakina o tātou moana – Care for our seas.

New public art project by Wellington artists Kemi Niko & Co. www.keminiko.com
