The work of the artist and architect Dennis Maher explores critical approaches to the demolition, renovation and restoration. Since 2003 he has been delving into areas affected by demolition, waste containers of construction materials and recycling materials stores in search of materials and obsolete items. The recovered components are stacked creating regenerated spaces, transforming lost places to rediscovered places, by means of recovery. His work explores the latent potential of the waste and the void, creating opportunities for regeneration in the most banal and least respected of the urban landscape. By carefully weaving the elements into disuse, new projections of imaginary cities and landscapes invented germinate, suggesting a new reality.
