'Our Daily Bread' by Linda Judge

Linda Judge, Our Daily Bread, 2019

After seeing photographs of the decayed bodies of albatross, with shards of coloured plastic where their stomachs used to be, Linda Judge began collecting small plastic fragments so that they couldn’t be ingested by sea birds.

As her collection of plastic bread tags grew, she started to use them in her practice, making small three-dimensional artworks that she would document before disassembling them to reuse.

In over a year Judge has made 52 artworks, which have been documented and hand bound into an artist’s book. Her new sculptural works also reframe the ubiquitous “use-by date” as a call to action. In doing so she highlights the tragic irony, wherein our own nourishment may be inadvertently contributing to the destruction of a species from starvation.
