Worktable is an ongoing live installation
that contemplates and completes acts of creation and destruction using every day, domestic objects. You´re welcome to visit for a short or long time. Open for several hours every day, the installation takes place in a series of rooms.
Once inside you are given instructions and equipment so you can get to work quickly. It’s up to you to decide how things come apart, and how they come back together. You can hack to pieces or dismantle a teacup, umbrella, alarm clock or newspaper. With an instruction manual under your arm – one spectator at a time – you are on your way to facing up to your own responsibility.
“There is no doubt there is a strangely therapeutic feeling to reconstituting an object, as if you are apologizing to it somehow, and to perhaps everything you have intentionally and unnoticingly broken in your life. The object becomes a totem to the potential that we all hold to continue the cycle of destruction and renewal of ideas and objects, with all the pathos and hope that entails”. This is Tomorrow, Contemporary Art Magazine.
