We create we destroy, locked in a perpetual cycle. Scrapclub celebrates the forces of destruction that pulse in each and every one of us. Surrounded by products manufactured en-masse to satisfy habits and lifestyle we find ourselves shaping around them, with them, for them. Intertwined, they mediate between ourselves and our environments and our needs.

Scrapclub offers an opportunity to retaliate.

PIANO SQUASHING

At the Kirkaldy Railway Museum in Southwark.
