No Working Title II
No Working Title is a collaboration between Bath School of Art and Design, Norwich University College of the Arts, Winchester School of Art, and Tate Modern. Selected students from each university were partnered up and using instructions that we sent to each other, each of us created a piece of work. This project explores and debates themes of ownership and authorship and instrcution based art practice.
After a number of steps including creating and sending instructions, making work and participating a critical debate at Tate Modern, the project's final stage is touring exhibition.
The curation was democratic which meant the process was somehow more involved but the outcome I believe is exceptional. Our objective was not so much to present the works but rather to explore the process we were involved in, feelings such as confusion over ownership, links between the works and instructions or physical aspects of communications (email/post).
