Resolve: A Creative Approach to the Circular Economy – Exhibition Review

I recently went to an exhibition called ‘Resolve: A Creative Approach to the Circular Economy’ on March 5th 2022. It is currently on display at Kirkcaldy Galleries in Kirkcaldy, Scotland, until May 8th 2022.

The first thing that sparked my interest in the exhibition was that it was separated into sections, of which there were four. The four sections were called ‘Share and Repair’, ‘Waste to Function’, ‘Powered by Renewable Energy’, and ‘Design for Disassembly’. This made it easier to navigate the exhibition displayed over two rooms. Even more, each section was linked with the circular economy, a useful concept as not everyone viewing the exhibition would know what is the meaning behind the circular economy.

The plaques where the information was displayed were made of wood, which was quite pleasing as they fitted in well with the theme of the exhibition – as wood is a material more environmentally friendly than plastic. Next to each piece of art or collection of artworks, there was a plaque that included information about the artist and the process behind it and some of the plaques had pictures on them which created more of an understanding of the process.


All of the artworks were unique and interesting in their own way making the exhibition very thought-provoking. It made me think profoundly about the impact that I have on the world and sparked lots of ideas for projects that I could embark upon myself in the future.

For this exhibition, I will be doing a series of articles in which some of the artists that took part will be interviewed.
