Worktable

Worktable is a live installation that contemplates and completes acts of creation and destruction using every day, domestic objects. Sign up to enter and stay as long as you like.

Once inside Worktable, you are given instructions, equipment and safety goggles. It’s up to you to decide how things come apart.

“The object becomes a totem to the potential that we all hold to continue the cycle of destruction and renewal of ideas and objects, with all the pathos and hope that entails.” – James Smith, This is Tomorrow (UK)


Concept and Realization: Kate McIntosh 
Production: SPIN

Kate McIntosh is an artist based in Brussels, originally from New Zealand, working across the boundaries of performance, theatre, video and installation. Originally trained in dance, McIntosh has performed internationally since 1995 appearing in the work of many internationally-acclaimed directors and currently tours her own performance and installation work around Europe, Australasia, Asia and the Americas – while this is her first appearance in the USA. Together with Diederik Peeters, Hans Bryssinck and Ingrid Vranken, McIntosh is a founding member of SPIN – an artist-run production and research platform in Brussels, who also organize publications and events for knowledge exchange. www.spinspin.be

The Invisible Dog Art Center is housed in a three-story former factory building in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Built in 1863, our 30,000 square foot facility has been the site of various industrial endeavors – most notably a belt factory that created the famous Walt Disney invisible dog party trick, from which they take their name. The building remained dormant from the mid 1990’s to 2009 when founder, Lucien Zayan, opened The Invisible Dog.

The Invisible Dog is dedicated to the integration of forward-thinking innovation with respect for the past. In 2009 the building was restored for safety, and has been maintained over the years, but otherwise preserved in tact from its original 1863 form. The rawness of the space is vital to the space’s cultural identity.

The ground floor is used for exhibitions, performances and public events, featuring artists and curators from round the world. This floor also includes a new pop-up shop, designed by artist-in-residence Anne Mourier, conceived as a new home for independent, commercial designers in various fields. The second floor and part of the third floor are divided into over 30 artists’ studios.The third floor, luminous and spacious is used for private events, exhibitions, performances and festivals. Finally, the Glass House is a brand new, seasonal exhibition space dedicated to featuring the work of female-identified artists.
