Worktable is a live installation, open to visitors for two weeks. Worktable takes place in a series of rooms built in EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art – you must sign in to enter and you can stay as long as you like. Once inside there are instructions, equipment and safety goggles so you can get to work – it’s up to you to decide how things come apart. We provide the hammer, you do the rest. Sign in and get to work!

Kate McIntosh is a Brussels-based artist who practices across the boundaries of performance, theatre, video and installation. Her works often focus on the physicality of both performer and audience, the manipulation of objects and materials, and the development of direct relations with and between audience members. McIntosh’s practice is guided by her ongoing fascinations with the misuse of objects, playfulness with the public, a love of theatrical images and an off-beat humour.
