Using black and white plastic trash bags, Khalil Chishtee creates life-sized figures who seem to be melting, deteriorating, being in ruins. This is very interesting and kind of symbolic, in at least two ways. First, the visual of deteriorating and decaying figures resembles our idea of trash, garbage. Second, there is this irony of creating melting and deteriorating objects using plastic, a material known for lasting years in nature, polluting and creating damage in nature.
Appreciate the sculptures made with plastic trash bags by Khalil Chishtee:
