Oh, presents new “work” made by artist Tiago Duarte. Work in the sense of “work” between ‘work’, “work” in the sense of art’work’..”Work” that is made through the action of picking, finding and storing – repetition that comes after selection. And archiving. The exhibition comes from a place that is reached without the means of a studio; through travelling regularly between locations for reasons of care, labour and roots; and with limits on time.
Memo has partnered with Caustic Coastal, an independent art label based in Salford, to develop Oh,. All of us have links to Manchester, finding each other through the artist-led scene via various means. Dividing because life. Reconvening because art.

AN EQUAL AND OPPOSITE REACTION
Louise Oates with text by James Haldane
28 APRIL - 12 MAY 2018
An Equal and Opposite Reaction lays out the paradox of humanity’s inescapably disruptive environmental impact in the context of our true insignificance to geological time. Adopting as its metaphor the global flow of bottled water across stagnating oceanic cycles, it borrows from the aesthetics of cargo packaging and commercially marketed ‘naturalness’ to construct an immersive environment that reveals our destabilising patterns of consumption as acts of anthropocentric self-sabotage.
