As part of our Art Week programming and commissions, Vikram Divecha’s Warehouse Project conflates art, commerce and commodities.
He has bartered the exhibition space given to him with a General Trading Company (LLC) requiring storage facilities, in exchange for the goods to be exhibited. The flow of goods in and out will create fluctuating sculptural structures shaped by the market’s hand. By diverting capital flows through this warehouse a multivalent situation is born.
The commodities get transformed into art objects during their brief time in the space, whilst registering Alserkal Avenue’s own transition from industrial area towards culture, an elevated form of commerce.
