  • Catalogue Essay

    “Kelley Walker’s retooled recycling logo … is an impressive example of self-reflexivity in art-making … In a cyclical chain of associations the image refers to its own lack of originality as a pre-existing emblem of ‘recycling’, to the conventionality of the artistic strategy of appropriation itself as one continually ‘recycled’, and to the feedback loop of its own selfconsciousness.”

    (E. Palmerton, ‘Grey Flags’, Frieze Magazine, issue 102, October 2006)
