Abstract or Description:

Through a series of installations, artists Haydn Jones, Fabio Lattanzi Antinori and Jonathan Munro touch upon issues such as corporate influence upon workspace, the office as a site of production, and the factor of miscommunication in work relations.

Each artist’s approach to the idea of office work and office work relations references the positioning of bodies within current systems of production and the cultural values that come with it. To question these values, they will produce an alternative workspace comprising familiar elements, yet these components will bear subtle defects, provide unknown functions. The elements of unexpectedness, opportunity for chance, and the feeling of incompleteness feed into the idea of how profoundly fragile our relationship with the external world has become.
