BA Fine Art Tutor BEN CAIN : - PASSIVE IMPERATIVE PARTICIPATION VIBE Flat Time House,
210 Bellenden Rd, London, SE15 4BW, UK
26 January – 25 February 2018
Open: Thursday - Sunday 12-6pm
This solo exhibition by London and Zagreb based artist Ben Cain, brings together a new body of work that responds to John Latham’s thinking on time and the event based nature of objects. Drawing on the domestic spaces of Flat Time House Cain creates an installation throughout Latham’s former home. Cain’s work explores art’s ambiguous relationship to industry, commodification and immaterial labour. He is interested in how artworks might pose questions about what we think they are doing and, by implication, our role as viewers in their social and cultural production. For Passive Imperative Participation Vibe Cain has focused on a subjective experience of time via labour, leisure and domestic living.
