Pluralities In Practice


Collective effort and experiments in commonality are exceedingly apparent as jewellers today attempt a social approach to the riddles presented by the field. Informal groups coalesce around a shared personal reference as a starting point for an exhibition; artistrun initiatives expand their scope to explore acts of collective making, and still others collectivise the unseen processes of an art practice, while inviting a participatory public into dialogue with their work. Finally, public workshops create the classic space for impromptu collective learning. Many hands are reflected in these expressions of craft as the ultimate shared resource.

A word from Kontrapunkt: Since completing our first Kontrapunkt exhibition just over a year ago, the biggest revelation to us was how, despite not all being close as people beforehand, we had started experiencing the benefit (and the efficiency!) of shared trust and non-hierarchical decision-making processes – what we soon came to call the Kontrapunkt Method. As we reflected on its possibilities as a model for better living in the world, we knew we had to keep going because there was so much more that we could experiment with and learn. And not just among ourselves. The audience is, in fact, just as important in the Kontrapunkt Method, not simply as viewers but active participants in our collective gesture of art-making.
