This solo exhibition by London and Zagreb based artist Ben Cain, brings together a new body of work that responds to John Latham’s thinking on time and the event based nature of objects. Drawing on the domestic spaces of Flat Time House Cain creates an installation throughout Latham’s former home. Cain’s work explores art’s ambiguous relationship to industry, commodification and immaterial labour. He is interested in how artworks might pose questions about what we think they are doing and, by implication, our role as viewers in their social and cultural production. For Passive Imperative Participation Vibe Cain has focused on a subjective experience of time via labour, leisure and domestic living.

Ben Cain has worked with Emma Hoette to bring about a performative intervention in the space of his exhibition Passive Imperative Participation Vibe. For this event Hoette will perform her own choreographed piece in the gallery responding to Cain’s installation and using individual artworks as props and supports for her body. Hoette’s activation of Cain’s artwork makes apparent his intention for these objects to be understood as event based and durational.
