In camera galerie presents a selection of the series « Plastic Vanitas », a photographic art project by Mariele Neudecker developed as part of a residency at the Museum of Design in Plastics (MoDIP) and the Arts University Bournemouth. 
Neudecker re-presents the MoDIP’s plastic collection as vanities still lifes.
Vanitas painting is a specific genre of still-life painting in which most exquisite accoutrements of everyday life are presented as symbols of the worthlessness of earthly achievement and the inevitability of death. A tradition that flourished in the Netherlands and Flanders in the 16th and 17th century. Neudecker develops the vanitas genre to symbolise the modern-day questions of impact, consumerism, waste ans sustainability.
