What’s Your Role? 2017
A celebration of the ‘Black Art’ at play behind-the-scenes at the factory, Michelle Wren’s multimedia installation was a humorous and evocative reflection on the hidden customs of the workforce.
Debbie knows the alarm is shorter for a label misfeed and longer for a flapfind. Gavin tricks his workmates into singing songs by typing their titles into a comments box. Jimmy started at the factory the day he finished school and the manager made him a clock- in card – he is still there 30 years later. Graham & Brown is teeming with stories and quirks, and Michelle Wren’s six-foot, animated, multimedia installation, with music by Phullopium Dude, intertwines them.
