Proposal for a Warehouse or Towards a Museum of Reorganisation
Proposal for a Warehouse or Towards a Museum of Reorganisation is a project by James Hutchinson (MFA graduate 2011) that addresses the transformation of objects as they move through spaces, carried by the forces of capitalist flow, and considers how the spaces they move through are themselves transformed to accommodate this flow. As a part of How to Turn the World by Hand? via Beijing, Edinburgh, İstanbul - a year long, international research project in collaboration with Arrow Factory / Beijing, Collective / Edinburgh and PiST/// Istanbul, Hutchinson will be based at PiST/// to develop his project which feeds into a dialogue around trade and global movements. During his stay Hutchinson will be making new work as part of his ongoing project which involves the production of art shipping crates in locations that have been subject to massive reorganisation due to an imposed economic imperative and this context will also focus on the rapid gentrification in areas of Istanbul.
