MadeIn Company (Shanghai)

48Sheet Project (2012)

WERK devise projects and commission artists within site-specific and context-specific situations to explore the relationship between art, the built environment, communities and audience. WERK have produced over twenty large scale projects including two light and art festivals in the last decade, working with over 300 artists (at different career stages) in project locales in the West Midlands, U.K. and internationally since 2006.

A pre-conceived notion of public art as an object often exists, WERK instead explore what contemporary public art might be away from this traditional and reductive definition. Every situation, social context and physical site presents a multitude of complexities and opportunities, and therefore social geography, urban planning and design is a source of ongoing interest.
