The Momental Order of Things

Objects such as builder's props, plastic barrels and a trolley are curated and installed in iterations over the course of the show. With each iteration a group of artists work together, investigating the objects further as a series of unprepared exploratory performance pieces. This results in a layering of accidental and open-ended compositions.

In this context momental refers to the temporality of the installation's composition, changing over the duration of the exhibition. However, momental is also a play on the assotiation with monuments/moments, where monuments are being errected and pulled down as societies ebb and flow over a large span of time.
