We have a special event on Saturday 14 November as part of the Digital
Performance Weekender, as well as a series of free workshops collaborating
with the artists for a new artwork. Please see info below. Fell free to
share with anyone who might be interested to join us.
*Production Methods *
By Executive Chair
Friday 6 November - Sunday 10 January
Special event: Saturday 14 November, 18.30-21.00, as part of Digital
Whether you have had a job for life, are on a zero-hours contract or are an
unpaid intern, Production Methods will seem familiar to all that have ever
worked. It gives an unsettling sense of scale forcing us to look upwards to
the boss or "the management" and beyond to the infrastructure and digital
technologies that influence so many of our waking and working hours.
Throughout the space office furniture and the remains of a bankrupt
business sit, the workers are absent, perhaps fired by group text message?
When visiting the gallery it might be buzzing with energy, and words, or
lying dormant waiting for the start of the business day. The boxes that
dominate the space are the kind hastily packed with possessions and
clutched by a worker just made redundant; containing within them the
promises and produce of marching progress, these boxes also serve as the
site of artistic production. And the gallery will be re-energised, a
business founded anew through a group of new economy workers who will bring
the space to life through a programme of participatory public workshops.
Production Methods brings together curatorial insights, sculptural
critiques and playful interventions into the infrastructure of financial
markets, the polemics and semantics of outsourced public services and the
diffuse boundary between work and life.
*Executive Chair* are artists Haydn Jones, Fabio Lattanzi Antinori,
Jonathan Munro working with curator Ozden Sahin. The group examines the
worlds of work and finance and how art and technology can be used to cast a
light on the diffuse boundary between work and life. They make playful,
challenging and engaging installations and sculptures that examine complex
personal, governmental and organisational relationships.
A series of five free participatory workshops will allow members to engage
with the project and collaborate with the artists for the production of a
new artwork and/or publication for the exhibition.
Workshop Dates: Saturdays, 31 October, 7, 14, 21, 28 November, 14.00-17.00,
All the best
