How To Solve Problems In The Office
Part-public part-private the new office will act as a problem for the exhibitions programme; inserting tables, chairs, computers, wires, folders, people and photocopies forcing the exhibitions to respond to the new environment, as the gallery is converted into a permanent working office.
How To Solve Problems In The Office is a manifestation of new bureaucratic structures necessary for Trade to expand, and a musing on the opportunities and problems these structures create.
At the core of the exhibition is a changing arrangement of artworks, alterations, additions and adjustments to the space and various office utilities by Russell Herron, Tom Godfrey, Oliver Braid, Candice Jacobs.
In addition there is a changing programme of themed wall based works. The first of these exhibitions includes works by: Simon & Tom Bloor, Andy Holden, Edoardo De Falchi, Elena Damiani and Sophie Percival, that document existing artworks, public sculpture and architecture, in various ways.
