Wellington St Leeds
26/3/14 - 02/4/14
SEIZE invited an international mix of 26 artists to respond to an office space - to explore the tools and working methods common to such spaces through making art. Occupying a disused floor of Wellington Park House, in Leeds' busy financial district, the exhibition brought together a diverse range of artists in order to showcase both emerging and more established practitioners from across the country.
Often seen as a bureaucratic environment, offices are associated with systematized tasks, the management of data and pro rata salaries, but rarely unregulated creative play. OVERTIME sought to use the unexpected friction generated by placing the work of art in the office to interrogate fixed attitudes towards working practices more generally.
The opening night of OVERTIME was kindly supported by North Bar
