LOVELY JAPANESE BAGS

While in Japan in April 2018 I collected all of the plastic bags I received while shopping, I also saved the receipts and bought some more plastic bags. For the Super_Schlag creative market at the Gr_und gallery I set up a table presenting the bags and receipts as collectibles. I sold these throw-away items as unique and exotic souvenirs, relating the stories associated with each. I took a selfie with every satisfied costumer, and packed their bag purchase into another bag.
