For Production Meeting 2, the Centre of Attention will be on location aiming to pursue the production of a number of works. The art space becomes a set as well as a production meeting venue, in what we call an active or "hot installation".
While pursuing the production of a number of video works, filming tests, script editing and performance, the Centre of Attention will be available the whole time to meet artists, discuss and review proposals and portfolios.
Uncertainty, provisionality and the lack of a defined product sees the moment of the exhibition, not as the culmination/fruition of a process, but as a production site for preliminary research and work to be completed at a later date (maybe).
One avowed aim of Production Meeting 2 is to turn the audience into fodder for our work: in this model, the viewer becomes the labour rather than participant, and the artist becomes the consumer, utilising, feeding of, bleeding the resources of the infrastructure, the space and the public for the realisation of their own ends.
of a production meeting may not bear any resemblance to what passes for
a production meeting in the corporate world.
