Your Sh*t/My Treasure is a response to the items thrown out onto the street in Govanhill. When walking around Govanhill (Scotland) we see lots of furniture, rubbish, that we try and ignore when we walk past it, or we complain, or we take it if we think we could use it. We would like to take the pieces of left over junk and in collaboration with local residents, move them to a central place. Once in that central place we would like to fashion the elements of Junk into sculptural works of art. We hope that could be a visible place in the community, to come and sculpt with us, to smash things up, to mold them into something new, reclaiming our sh*t as treasure.
