DoNothing

 

Trajectories Exhibition,

Watermans Art Centre,

London, 2018 –

Through the deployment of a ‘DO nothing’ signpost, Cerrato and Halls draw on the historical purpose of a signpost as a means of orientation, a meeting place and a mean of communication. In our accelerating world, we don’t have time to reflect.

 

The artists have created a ‘DO nothing’ space that challenges this: that allows people to stop, to orient themselves with their own future and thoughts. While ‘DO nothing’ implies passivity, in fact the idea of actively pursuing doing nothing, requires the individual to act contrary to the contemporary standard.

The Road

 

Common Market,

Distributed Symposium,

London, 2018–

This publication explores the standardisation of human-made systems and the conformity built into even the most mundane objects.


The booklet consists of a manifesto for the expanded front cover, declaring our message in a singular text. Meanwhile, a visual narrative explores a singular notion which is deconstructed and reimagined both verbally and literally through a series of images and text.


Curator: Joshua Trees

Surface

 

Common Room Exhibition,

Hockney Gallery,

London, 2016–

Working as a site-specific installation its purpose was to bring the tension of the current plastic contamination in the ocean into the building. This project was a translation of the amount of plastic in the ocean into the given space which resulted in 1300 plastic bottles.

 

The structure constructed in the space in contrast to weight of the plastic created a tension in the space. This gallery space was located at the entrance of the building.
