The performance takes place within the framework of Flinn Works' White Money. Download the full programme HERE.
Untitled sends preconceived perceptions and everyday uses of money through the shredder. As money is stripped of its value and returned to its source material - paper - the artistic work brings forth other meanings and explores the value of "worth." Untitled is part play and part craft, which brings mapping, speculation and storytelling to bear. The audience experiences how wealth turns into nothing, into paper pulp - for the undescribed beginning of a speculative future. Untitled penetrates through bank accounts into minds and hearts, forging connections and tracing interdependencies within a global capitalist machinery. In doing so, the project seeks to unravel larger questions and provokes thought about notions of ownership, principles of give and take, privilege and aid, and trust in the value of money.
