Fishing nets, tree trunks, beach toys and other flotsam and jetsam from Hac Sa beach are all part of DESPERDÍCIO, a thought-provoking, an environmentally conscious exhibition running at the Hold On to Hope Gallery in the Village of Our Lady in Ka-Ho until 9 October.

The exhibition, whose title translates as “waste”, was put together by Angolan artist Tchusca Songo to promote the concept of Reuse, Recycle and Reduce. The gallery said that Macao “still has a lot of work ahead of it” when it comes to following the Three Rs.

Songo was born in the Angolan exclave of Cabinda in 1978 and moved to Macao in 2006. Her artworks focus on nature conservation and waste recycling. She has a Product Design degree from the University of Saint Joseph-Macau and has extensive experience in woodblock printing, traditional lantern making, photography, jewellery and puppetry, The Macau Post Daily reported.
