Process Accelerator 2.0
Exhibition: 9th February– 9th March 2019 (Thursday – Saturday, 12 – 6pm)
Process Accelerator 2.0 is a large scale installation, comprising video and 3D printed sculptural objects, by Finland-based artist Anu Suhonen. The exhibition presents a factory that chases maximum productivity, reflecting on late capitalism’s push for constant economic growth. Like a snake eating its own tail at an ever-increasing pace, Process Accelerator 2.0 explores technological advancement; mass production; and short-lifespan goods, considering the effects this vicious circle has on the environment and its limited resources.
The exhibition is the outcome of a 5 week, fully funded residency titled ART/WORK hosted by Block 336 and organised in conjunction with the Finnish Institute in London. Coinciding with the conclusion of Finland’s two-year ‘social experiment’ to provide a universal basic income, the residency invited Anu Suhonen as it’s selected recipient to develop new work, reflecting on themes around, ‘work’, ‘pay’ and ‘labour’.
This is a new, fully funded international opportunity. The recipient receives:
Accommodation in Central London for the period
A materials budget, £2,000
Artist fee, £1,200
A 4 week public exhibition
