Take care now uses performance, installation and video navigate the complexities of value and progress in relation to capitalism, and to illuminate the emotional labour present within daily processes of caring. Formed through a porous and durational threshold between art-making and ‘life-living’, Take care now is ultimately concerned with encouraging practices of caring response to encounter. It seeks to set up a consciousness and criticality regarding modes of maintenance, responsibility and privilege within daily interactions, and establishes a necessary change of pace in regards to ‘life-living’. This type of caring is not based in grand gestures, but rather is embedded in the accumulation of caring actions.
