By locating his thinking and artistic practice within the context of ‘performing’ (as opposed to teleological models of progress, measurement and outcome) Dutton will map some of the tactics and strategies which are central to his current work as an artist onto what he describes as an ‘imaginary Office of Institutional Aesthetics which sits within an imaginary Art Institution’. Following the sometimes perverse ‘performative logic’ of his practice, he will propose, and play with, a conceptual model of an institution which prioritises the work of art, (what the work of art can do), exploring the relationships between potentiality and actuality which come to the fore when thinking of the work of art as thing which is always unfolding.
