The Matter of Matter (Part II)
Platform Graduate Award Showcase 2013,
Turner Contemporary, Margate. 9th Oct - 9th Nov 2013.
The Matter of Matter (Part II) was a durational and semi-performative installation in which I transformed the Turner Contemporary gallery space into my studio, exposing and interrogating my working process to an audience on a daily basis. The work gradually evolved over the exhibition period through a layered and open-ended process of unpacking, examining, cataloguing and re-packing the contents of my studio whilst simultaneously producing new objects and interactions.
In this way, the exhibition served as a medium and a test site rather than a resolved endpoint, putting into question the supposed functions and expectations of the production and exhibition spaces (and of Turner Contemporary itself).
The installation and working process lasted for
For the remaining 2 weeks of the exhibition, 2 catalogues were displayed - a typewritten one, listing the installation's entire contents (produced during the work period); and a photographic catalogue documenting the installation itself.
