Bag for Life


The artist Franko B designed this plastic carrier bag as part of the advance publicity for the performance, Still Life at the South London Gallery. (It was later cancelled due to censorship imposed by Southwark Council.)

The photograph on the bag is one of several taken by Franko of homeless people, as part of his series, Still Life.

The bag was offered to the public for £1.50, on the basis that the purchaser could send back a worn-out bag and receive a free replacement (while stocks lasted).
