For every issue, Ordinary Magazine invites talented international artists to alter a particular ordinary object into something extraordinary. Issue 5, that launches on the 12th of April 2017, is dedicated to an ordinary rubbish bag while celebrating collaboration with 45 talented international artists. Since in the limelight of Ordinary #5 is such an interesting, debate-provoking subject, we glimpsed into the spreads of the magazine to see what occurs with this everyday (in)essential object. Ordinary #5 comes as a special double edition that besides a rubbish bag will enfold one of three different rubbish posters made by the Japanese artist Yumiko Utsu, known for her surrealist-inspired fine art images. Other artists featured in the issue are David Brandon Geeting, Kelia Anne MacCluskey, Chris Maggio, Bompas & Parr, Sebastian Henkel, and Taisuke Koyama, just to name a few.
