Lloyd Corporation Research Padlet, 2020
Lloyd Corporation are an artist duo based in London and Athens. In 2021 they will present a new body of work, Today’s gift is tomorrow’s commodity. Yesterday’s commodity is tomorrow’s found art object. Today’s art object is tomorrow’s junk. And yesterday’s junk is tomorrow’s heirloom, commissioned by Brighton CCA. Taking as their starting point the social, political, cultural and design history of the barrel as a unit of measurement, symbol of trade and embodiment of narrative. The Lloyd Corporation have been developing their research into this ambitious new commission throughout 2020. The installation of new work will be presented across the Brighton CCA spaces and will be a reflection on the interwoven local and global histories of commerce and how conceptions of value and use are transposed and reinterpreted across time.
