Industry Gallery presents Fossilized, the first solo US exhibition of work by Jens Praet, opening January 15, 2011, 6-8 PM, and continuing until February 26, 2011.  The Belgium-born, Florence-based Praet has shredded and recycled copies of Art in America, Capitol File, Details, Fast Company and Robb Report mixed with clear resin to create five different designs - console, bench, side table, large table and large shelf - each in an edition of 12 with each design made from a specific title.  Fossilized is part of the designer's Shredded Collection, which originated out of his concern about sustainability and the amount of waste paper being generated globally.
