Restless Linings focuses on concepts of precarious labour and collective social change. This evolving exhibition will happen socially, engaging with the public while the artists will work on site. Theme of economic uncertainty, or “precarious labour” will act as a background to open up conversations around temporary jobs, reserve labour, debt as many ways of describing precariousness.

Live-art performances, videos, installations and ephemeral materials shift drawing from the familiar (works-on-paper, paperwork) over to certain stages of uncertainty. Additionally, the artists will enhance participation by using familiar and common dialogue, such as walking and breathing techniques. The works developed from this approach will become tangible, relating artists/audience to ephemera and the architecture of the space where the exhibition will evolve over its duration.

As the exhibition will change and evolve throughout its duration; a closing event will take place on Friday 22nd November, to celebrate the experimental nature of this exhibition. This event will be free for all to attend.

This exhibition is curated by Béa Kayani and Laura Bottin.
