Exploring the limits of the expert and insights of the amateur.
Artists Toby Lloyd and Andrew Wilson will build a functional, but temporary, hospitable environment, to encourage spontaneous conversation modes. This installed environment, and related video installation, will host a number of formal and informal events in response to Shunryu Suzuki’s observation: ‘In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities but in the expert’s mind there are few.’
Lloyd & Wilson are currently undertaking an ambitious East St. Arts live/work residency in a traditional back-to-back terraced house in South Leeds. Prior to Flatpack they conducted a number of ‘action research residencies’ across three northern cities in order to collectively re-evaluate existing hierarchies and powerstructures.
