Michael Craig - Cold Shoulder

Michael Craig - Cold Shoulder


C O L D S H O U L D E R
An exhibition of conspicuous consumption
By Michael Craig

In association with the Auckland Festival of Photography 2008

18 - 29 June
Opening: Tues 17th June 5.30 – 7pm

Michael is a renowned documentary photographer who spent the first three years of the new millennium obsessing about fridges. A minor change to European law resulted in the cessation of retailer talkback schemes for refrigerators…(You couldn’t trade-in your old fridges!). These goods continued to be sold in records numbers.

The old units, mostly in full working order, were cast onto the streets. Local Councils were caught by surprise. Fridges were left in place to decorate the pavements. Some were cannibalised. Some were recycled into impromptu seating at bus stops. Some were used as much needed litter bins, missing from the streets of London for so many years because of terrorism. Cold War is the intriguing result of Michael’s obsession.
