Ben Cain: Down Time


As part of A New Reality: Part 2, this exhibition of new sculpture, film and performance works explores ideas around what ‘work' is, or has become, utilising work-related paraphernalia from the past. In moments of ‘down-time' energy-generating systems produce excess energy that is stored for later use. Cain would like to consider waste production and non-productive activity in relation to self-preservation — examining acts which might be knowingly futile (in that they realise or manifest nothing in terms of material output) but nevertheless provide a sense of engagement with the production of the material world. Anchored by two sculptural installations in the first floor Atrium and gallery spaces, artworks within Down Time will relocate around The Tetley, be replaced and be added to over the course of the project. The project incorporates a series of events exploring these themes.
