My Goals Are Bigger Than Yours: Cathleen Owens
“Out of the proverbial office”
April 19 — May 28
From the 19th of April, Cathleen Owens will be in residence at Cas-co, taking a week of annual leave from her desk job in Amsterdam. From Monday, 19 April from 9am onwards, you are welcome to ring the doorbell at Cas-co titled “Cathleen Owens” to receive a changing recorded message. During this work week out of the proverbial office, the artist will record conversations with colleagues about their relationship to work and rest.
“Thanks for your visit. I am out of the office today. Currently on a walk pondering how much vulnerability I can share before it turns perverse. I’ll connect with you at my earliest convenience.”
“Thank you for contacting me. I’m currently out of the office. Busy thinking about if I would like to have a baby or not.”
Are you an artist struggling with how to do it all? Or how to do it at all? Interested in joining for a walk, drinking a coffee, or watching a film together? Contact via e‑mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Instagram (@cathleenowens).
