#temporarycustodians is an R&D project initiated by curator Helen Kaplinsky and artist Maurice Carlin, asking how the shift towards the sharing economy, collaborative commons and peer2peer distribution might constitute an alternative to historical modes of public and private collecting. The term ‘custodian’ evokes responsibility, guardianship, and care taking; ‘temporary,’ the ideal of a TAZ (Temporary Autonomous Zone) and a property function of ‘holding without owning.’ #temporarycustodians is based at the Regent Trading Estate Warehouse, next door to Islington Mill where they are currently storing artworks by Lindsey Seers, Joey Holder and Laura Morrison amongst others.
