A friend once described the artistic process to me as a combination between long and short durées – cargo ships and speed boats. The former are the time-taking, life investments which go slowly but surely along: continuous, somewhat coherent, and committed. The latter are the flights of fancy, the quick trips for supplies – forming connections with other themes, ideas and places, but always returning to sustain the bigger project. We all have baggage (be it lost in transit or the reason for overweight luggage charges).

By way of introduction to a conversation on the theme of CARGO in Maia Urstad’s exhibition, curator Clare Butcher will talk about the value of waiting beside the conveyor belt, which may or may not return the precious objects we loaded on board in the very beginning.
