Tin & Ed

A Relative
Distance

6 March — 28 March 2009

“tin&ed’s first solo show, A Relative Distance, is also collaborative. The exhibition reveals the documentation of a workshop in which the artists placed time and material restraints upon a group of friends from different creative backgrounds to encourage randomness and spontaneity, and as a means of giving up control over the final outcome.

However, in this ‘lack of control’ we find qualities that are distinctly tin&ed, and begin to wonder about the ways autonomy and the accidental can actually co-exist. Through a combination of puppetry and social curatorship, collective consciousness is fostered, coherency is attained, and predictability is still avoided. This is not to say that their experiment hasn’t been successful, not at all. Instead, what A Relative Distance reasserts is that, in the right conditions, no experiment can be a failure”. – Chris Barton
