Artists in this exhibition: The WITH Collective


The WITH Collective: Resident

Fri 30 Sept — Sun 6 Nov

Resident is a witty and engaging rumination on the role of the artist in a rapidly changing and blurred cultural landscape. For their exhibition, The WITH Collective have moved a large section of our caffi bar into the gallery and have installed a paying turnstile into another section of the exhibition so that visitors must choose whether to pay to see the remainder of the show and to receive an unlimited edition WITH artwork.

These jarring and provocative interventions have created a site for a series of unfolding (yet invisible) performances where WITH will be engineering a number of delegated actions on behalf of visitors to the exhibition. As well as posing timely questions about the ongoing sustainability of the art sector, resident explores the nature of participation, memory and responsibility through a series of multilayered new works.

Since its inception in 2002, The WITH Collective has received critical praise in the UK and beyond, largely through the creation of a diverse range of concepts that are for sale at their website, including: Knowthing™ where a commissioner can have their ‘me-time’ delegated to a member of the collective and mymory™ where a client can have a memory recovered (or lost) on their behalf. These concepts or ‘solutions’ are the primary manifestation of the artwork; the theme that links all of the ideas together is that a client can have an experience either invented or lived out on their behalf by a member of the collective.

WITH are hosting a talk on Thursday 3 November with Professor Christopher French, head of the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit at Goldsmiths, University of London, about ‘false memory’, as part of a new collaborative body of research commissioned by the Wellcome Trust.
