The word ‘practice’ can equally be a verb or a noun. We practice tasks in order to achieve proficiency. On the other hand, a practice, whether that of an artist, architect, lawyer or doctor, is an established set of procedures: a framework for production.
Practice explores the fluid and uncertain territory in which practicing can become a practice.It foregrounds the discipline, idiosyncrasy and utopianism that are embedded in art making, viewing the generative openness of an ongoing art practice as a cumulative work-in-progress.
