AbstractMaking Shaking Shifting Pouring Sawing is an investigation that explores the idea of repeated and intensive labour in relation to artistic and domestic process. The work features cyclical movement, made and found objects, sound, data, video, animation and live performance. This collaborative research with Debra Swann has developed through a series of residencies at Primary, Nottingham and Summer lodge at Nottingham Trent University 2016. Our first exhibition was in Antwerp, Belgium, at Collective National Gallery in 2016 (Collective National was founded by Janna Beck, Lecturer at The Academy in Antwerp) and then an exhibition at Primary, Nottingham 2017 Through collaborative fieldwork we have developed a number of performances and objects around the themes of repeated or iterative labour in relation to the artistic process. Objects perform; we make, we operate, we facilitate or manage and we gather data. Through durational live performances and events an audience can experience the work and its temporal quality. We document the tasks we undertake and collect data/material from objects whilst exploring processes through repetitive tasks, systems or routines. This is reinvested into the work, by way of sound, image or video creating an ongoing process. There is a play between the hand made and the machine, the analogue and the digital.
