Working title: Untitled (TWOC)

Commissioned by mima (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art), the Alternative Art College and curator, Paul Stewart, Untitled (TWOC) puts the life (movement, mediation, networks, learning, etc) of the curator at the centre of the work and in the process of it’s making and un-making. Part performance, event, object and installation, Untitled (TWOC) consists of 31 specially designed baseball caps (worn on consecutive days by the curator) and a bookcase (installed in mima for caps to hang on). Each cap comes delivered to Paul Stewart’s home address and once worn by the curator for a single day is deposited at the end of that day in mima (beginning top left).
TWOC moves between performance, event, object and installation, between Middlesbrough and mima and between ‘outside’ and ‘inside’, taking on a growing visibility and materiality as it does so.
Each day of the month, the work ‘begins’ again with curator Paul Stewart, following his movements as it slowly, inevitably finds its way to mima.
TWOC begins Friday May 1st and ‘ends’ Sunday May 31st
