Pablo Accinelli’s work manipulates and subverts familiar objects to reveal latent uses and functions, often featuring measuring tools, modular typographies, publications and items associated with labour or a lack of. The objects also function as references to specific environments and co-exist to form a unifying landscape that is invisible, yet present. These synthesized places can be inhabited physically and mentally, and hint at a time after work, of waiting, leisure and ways to expand time.

During his residency at Gasworks, Pablo plans to take inspiration from the spatial organisation of work environments that were created specifically in the UK during the Industrial Revolution and their representation in the art and literature of the time, both figuratively and metaphorically.
