Title: Undefined Revolution

Artist: Fiona Jardine
Title: Five Foot Shelf
Five Foot Shelf aims to generate comparisons between knowledge and trade, playing with notions of visibility and legality; circuits of production, encoding and storage. Developed in tandem with a year-long project between Collective, Pist (Istanbul) and Arrow Factory (Beijing), Fiona Jardine presents Five Foot Shelf after a six week residency in Beijing.
Artist: James Hutchinson
Title: Proposal for a Warehouse or Towards a Museum of Reorganisation
The exhibition takes the form of a number of shipping crates, each produced in a location where a rapid economic transformation is taking (or has taken) place; a transformation requiring coercive re-organisation at great human or social cost.
Hutchinson addresses the transformation of objects as they move through spaces, carried by the forces of capitalistic flow, and considers how the spaces they move through are themselves transformed to accommodate the flow.
