Container takes artists onboard commercial container carriers along existing international shipping routes. Hosting artists in the ships' available cabins, this backstage pass provides firsthand encounters with maritime shipping. Container challenges the traditional idea of studio residencies and invites artists to work within a unique intersection of industry, culture and technology. The residency's geographic location can only be defined in relation to the various shipping routes and the nexus of destinations that form the backdrop of global trade. Anchored in a context without a fixed physical location, Container foregrounds global commerce as the artist's own immediate work environment.
