The Wasteland Project is nonfinite project in which Annelie Grimwade Olofsson collect and experiment with industrial byproducts and waste materials through a combined process of theoretical research, applied experimentation and artistic narration, in the creation of objects, which challenges our perception of material value and the human role as consumer.

Since the industrialisation of human society, humankind has become a geological force to be recon with, evidently capable to rival those of Earths own systems. As the global population increases so does the consumption of goods, and the creation of waste, which threatens earths ecosystems and by default our own existence.

The objects can be seen as material manifestations, unlike theoretical works that discuss but do not create Anthropocene objects.

About the designer


Annelie Grimwade Olofsson (1991) is exploring the correlation of industry, society, and environment from a material point of view, working on the intersection of art, design, and activism. She uses applied experimentation and to elicit impacting experiences and imagine future possibilities, contemplating environmental and social issues in the aim of fostering human relation to Earth. The primary objective of her projects is to spread knowledge, create awareness, and challenge rigid belief systems regarding value, and how it’s interlinked with materials, the economy and political agendas.

Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
