Get wrapped up in food art at Bites

Get even more wrapped up in Bankstown Bites this year by taking in the food art showcase, which explores the packaging our food often comes in, as well as how raw ingredients are prepared. 

One of the artists, Elizabeth West, will unveil her artwork, called Wrapped, which highlights the scale of plastic food packaging waste. 

“I hope Wrapped will draw attention to the fact, although the majority of us recycle, we’re not recycling correctly and placing different types of plastics in the right bins, which impacts the environment,” Ms West said. 

“The idea is people will engage with the work by taking a walk through it, thinking about what more they can do to be sustainable. 

“Once they reach the end, they have the chance to take a bit of plastic and recycle it in the proper bin.” 

Ms West said, although most people think art is supposed to only be seen and not touched, she encouraged people to interact with her design. 

“It would be amazing to see the art disappear before my eyes and recycled, that way I know I’ve helped educate people on correct disposal of food packaging.” 

The installation in the forecourt of the Arts Centre will be constructed using hundreds of pieces of clear plastic food packaging, which are bound together to form a walk through maze. 

Other pieces of art being featured at the Arts Centre for Bankstown Bites this year, include a Fruity sculpture in the courtyard, created by Stephanie Peters, which will delve into the fruit and vegetable cartons used by shopkeepers in Saigon Place, and the Behind the Table visual exhibit, by Waljhah Hamid, that looks at the creative process behind the food we eat. 

The Arts Centre will be a particular destination for children at Bites this year, with various workshops relating to the exhibitions and theme of the day, food. 

Bankstown Bites will be held at Olympic Parade, Bankstown, on Saturday July 29 from 10am-4pm. For more information go to
